BERN, Switzerland (AP) FIFA vice president Juan Angel Napout has agreed to be extradited to the United States to face charges in the soccer bribery case.

The Swiss justice ministry says Napout, who is from Paraguay, consented to his extradition at a police hearing Tuesday.

Napout contested extradition at a first hearing last Thursday, hours after he was arrested in a pre-dawn police raid at the luxury Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich.

The president of South American confederation is said to have received bribes worth millions of dollars from Copa America broadcasting rights.

Napout must be collected by American authorities within 10 days.

The Swiss ministry says ''no details concerning when he will be handed over are to be disclosed for reasons of security and privacy.''
