World Cup, risk of exclusion for Ecuador: is a place free in Qatar?

The Fifa has officially announced that it has opened a procedure about the national teamEcuador: in recent days the Chilean Football Federation had filed an appeal for the case of Byron Castillo. Il footballer, deployed by Ecuador in some matches, would have presented a fake birth certificate: not only would it be born on another date than the one disclosed, but it would also be nato in Colombia e non in Ecuador. The footballer in fact, according to the Chilean accusation, was born in 1995 and not in 1998, as reported in the documents of the Ecuadorian Football Federation. “Castillo was born in Colombia, in the city of Tumaco, on July 25, 1995 and not November 10, 1998 in the Ecuadorian city of Playas “, the Chilean Football Federation had written in his statement. The accusatory thesis is therefore that the player would not have had the right to play for the national team Ecuador, which therefore should have lost the game in eight matches played by Castillo in the South American group of world qualifiers. In this way, Chile, which has faced Ecuador twice with Castillo on the field, would have 5 points more in the standings and it would replace Ecuador in Qatar. “To the Disciplinary Commission – reports the Fifa note – accusations were presented regarding the possible falsification of the documents that confer Ecuadorian nationality on the player Byron David Castillo Segura, as well as the possible failure by said player to comply with the call-up criteria to participate in eight qualifying matches of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar“.

World Cup in Qatar, is a window opening for Italy?

From the same Chile however, a hypothesis arrives that would concern theItalia: if Fifa in fact directly excluded Ecuador with adirect expulsion of the national team, would be the international ranking to be used as a criterion for repechage. In this case, the sixth place of the Azzurri would make Mancini’s team the highest national team in the standings not qualified for the World Cup in Qatar, and therefore the first team to be repurchased. The ball passes now at the FIFAcall in a short time a taking a decision south procedure.
