Former Costa Rican soccer federation president Eduardo Li was banned for life on Friday by FIFA's ethics committee after he broke the global football governing body's rules against bribery and corruption, the ethics panel said in a statement.

Li was arrested in 2015 in an international corruption probe and has since pleaded guilty in U.S. federal court to racketeering and wire fraud.

Li, who also served on the executive committee for the North and Central America and Caribbean soccer confederation, was accused of seeking and taking bribes linked to the awarding of marketing rights for FIFA World Cup qualifying games.
