Football - Costa Rican exfootball official pleads guilty to conspiracy
A former head of the Costa Rican football federation has pleaded guilty in New York to conspiracy and other charges. Eduardo Li admitted in yesterday’s plea that he took hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from sports marketing executives and others. He’s among about 20 soccer officials indicted on charges stemming from a US investigation of corruption in the sport. The sprawling investigation touches on bribes and kickbacks involving FIFA, soccer’s governing body.
