Chile Application to find Ecuador place in World Cup

Eduardo Carlezzo, a lawyer representing the Chilean government, said on Wednesday that “the level, the quantity and the quality, of the data and evidence that we can write has taken us by surprise.” Carlezzo claimed that in addition to the Ecuadorean certificate used by Castillo, there was also a Colombian child with a similar name born in 1995 and his parents with the same name as Castillo’s. “What can we not do with this level of evidence in hand?” Carlezzo says.

Concerns about Castillo’s legitimacy have had an impact on Ecuadorean workers as well. In March 2021, Carlos Manzur, vice president of the Ecuadorian football association, commented much as much on the media coverage of local media.

“I think it’s a matter of playing safe, fashion issues,” Manzur told reporters at the time. “I think he is a good athlete. If he were me, I would not have him playing for the country. I would not have done that. I would not risk everything we do.”

About a month later, an Ecuadorean court issued Castillo with a personal statement that appeared to pave the way for him to become his national leader, which he did five times. months later in games that include a 0-0 draw at home. Chile. Since then he has played in eight games total, including a 2-0 win over Chile in November that was all but ending the last hopes of qualifying.

After questions about Castillo’s qualifications were reported in the local media, Manzur, Ecuador’s sporting director, announced that all disputes in Castillo’s case had been resolved and itself Ecuadorean recognized. “The national team has to wait until that is fixed to include the player on his team,” Manzur said.

This should now be decided by FIFA.

“We understand, according to all records and records, that the facts are too heavy and need to be investigated by FIFA properly,” said Pablo Milad, president of the Chilean organization. fit footballer, said in a statement to The Times. “We always respect honest leaders and we expect other organizations to do the same.”

Ecuador finished fourth and final automatic in South America 10-nation World Cup qualifiers, two points of Peru, which will face Australia or the United Arab Emirates in June for a place in the finals. Chile finished sixth in Colombia in the standings, but Castillo did not play in the Ecuadorian game against Colombia or Peru. That has made Chilean authorities believe in the meaning that they should get by playing the wrong game – and for Ecuador to lose – to jump them into the right place in Ecuador.
