Case Byron Castillo, Live: Chile, Ecuador or Colombia for the 2022 World Cup | FIFA resolution
The beginning of the Chilean invasion
On May 5, the ANFP ruled in the case of Ecuador’s national team Byron Castillo. This follows a journalist’s complaint that the footballer had lied about his nationality in the recent qualifying round with the South American team.
On the way to the World Cup in Qatar (wins tie and Ecuador), Castillo’s native Colombia played two duels against La Rose. Therefore, the governing body of Chile football complained to the FIFA regulatory body, arguing that “the facts are very serious and should be thoroughly investigated”. As a result, the final picture of the situation could change significantly in favor of Chile.
Sports legal action was announced by the ANFP in a public statement. In short, the company stated that “there is ample evidence that the player was born on July 25, 1995 in Dumago, Colombia, and not on November 10, 1998 in General William Place, Ecuador.” .
He added, “The football world cannot close its eyes to many trials. The practice of serious and conscious abuses in the recording of players is unacceptable, especially when we talk about the World Cup. There must be a fair game on and off the field.”
The statement added that the complaint was lodged on Wednesday, May 4, by the National Football Board’s executive committee, through a “Carlesso Lawyers Review”. The move was “against player Byrne David Castillo Segura and the Ecuadorian Football Association for misuse of birth certificate, false declaration of age and incorrect citizenship of the aforementioned player.”
