Peru coach Sergio Markarian has confirmed the identity of three players he will exclude from the national team after they partied for hours following a 1-0 loss to Panama.
Markarian avoided using the players' names but told journalists that "they are the names that you've been mentioning. I don't want to say them because I don't want to hurt either them or their families."
Media reported that strikers Jefferson Farfan and Reimond Manco, and defender John Galliquio went to a Panama city club until early hours of the morning after the friendly loss last Wednesday.
Markarian said "the three are now confirmed, they will not be called up for upcoming games. I have nothing more to say."
