Three weeks after Mexican soccer federation (FMF) officials fined and suspended players for staging a post-game party, word comes out of Mexico that 13 players, including Red Bulls midfielder Rafael Marquez, have asked not be selected for the national team until there's a change of attitude within the FMF.

National team director Nestor De La Torre announced fines and suspensions days after the Sept. 7 friendly against Colombia in Monterrey. As of Tuesday afternoon the FMF had not confirmed any action from the players.
