Like father like son

From last Tuesday Spanish FA president Angel Maria Villar Llona, together with his son Gorka Villar who is an ex-CONMEBOL executive, are spending the nights in jail. Besides these two, three other officials were arrested at the headquarters in Madrid. All of them are charged of misappropriation of funds, improper management and falsifying documents.
Based on these accusations Spanish police have opened an investigation of organizing friendly matches against Spain. The father is accused of arranging friendly matches where in return his son gets commercial agreement, financial benefit, contracts for representation, lobbying etc. For the authorities 7 games are suspicious: Mexico and Argentina in 2010, Venezuela and Costa Rica away in 2011, Qatar away in 2013, Bosnia and Herzegovina in Swiss town of Saint Gallen and South Korea in Austrian Salzburg in 2016.
