FIFA puts an end to the doubt by announcing the rejection of the Chilean request whose object is the non-qualification of the ”Ecuadorian” player Byron David Castillo.
Chile argued that the player in question was not eligible to participate in the World Cup qualifiers which allowed Ecuador to qualify. Chile had accused Ecuador of falsifying the nationality of the player in question. He wouldn’t be Ecuadorian. Chile hoped to take the place of Ecuador.
FIFA ruled that Byron David Castillo was Ecuadorian, that his situation was in order.
