A Uruguayan official arrested in the FIFA corruption scandal is due to be extradited to the US. Swiss authorities say former FIFA vice-president Eugenio Figueredo is accused of taking millions of dollars in bribes connected to future Copa America tournaments, plus the one that took place this year in Chile. He’s also accused of faking medical documents to become a US citizen. Figueredo, also a former CONMEBOL president, was one of seven FIFA officials arrested in Zurich back in May; he now has 30 days to appeal the extradition. Meanwhile, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has been suspended from his post after allegations that he was part of a scheme to sell World Cup tickets above face value.
