Ex-Costa Rican soccer chief to plead guilty in U.S. bribery case

NEW YORK, Oct 7 (Reuters) - A former Costa Rican soccer federation president who was arrested last year in a U.S. corruption probe involving the sport’s global governing body FIFA is expected to plead guilty on Friday, according to court records.

Eduardo Li, who is also a former member of the executive committee for the North and Central America and Caribbean soccer confederation, CONCACAF, is scheduled to appear in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y., for a plea hearing, court records show.
