Chile appealed over Ecuador World Cup 2022

Chile appealed over Ecuador World Cup 2022

Chile appeal to FIFA to replace Ecuador at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar, but the request got rejected.

FIFA dismissed Chile’s argument that Ecuador player Byron Castillo was actually Colombian and ineligible to play in tournament qualifying, in which Castillo made eight appearances for Ecuador.

FIFA said its appeal judges “deemed that on the basis of the documents presented, the player was to be considered as holding permanent Ecuadorian nationality in accordance” with football’s legal statutes.

The verdict, which upholds a FIFA disciplinary ruling from June and will likely be taken to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), keeps Ecuador on track to play in Qatar — they face the hosts in the opening game of the World Cup in Doha on Nov. 20.

However, Chile’s legal challenge can continue. The Chilean football federation has said it intends to appeal against FIFA’s verdict to sport’s highest court — CAS in Lausanne, Switzerland — which can organize an urgent hearing and ruling ahead of the World Cup.

And Chile claimed to have evidence proving Castillo is Colombian and should not have appeared for Ecuador.

Do you think Ecuador should be kicked out of the FIFA World Cup 2022?
