Byron Castillo is Ecuadorian. He has no problem travelling everywhere with the NT because the country says he is Ecuadorian. Chile and FIFA have no say in the country's process in deciding who has citizenship or not.

The chilean federation are a bunch of disgusting, slimy crooks.

Haha so the date was moved to prove he is Ecuadorian so if you guys get punished the 5th place team might change :)

They should ban the player if he is Colombian. Tho this really should have been settled when Uruguay mentioned the same player in youth levels. Or mentioned after he played 2 games not 8 and not 4/5 months after qualifiers ended. Fifa did strip a team points for bringing an ineligible player to 1 Round of games last cycle.

They are asking Peru what they think and want to do.

I mean if I was Peru I defiantly would call BS on Chile leapfrogging me into 4th place

Chile is currently 7th and want to be 4th.

For me I’m Forza Ecuador on this. Think Colombia just got a coach because it is hoping Ecuador gets eliminated and we slide into 5th.

Removing 8 games a player attended
While would make Chile 4th. Changes the whole dynamic of qualifiers since Paraguay would have still been alive potentially. So 4 teams fighting for 5th.

this has been a controversy since the player emerged as a starter for Barcelona at 19. Courts decided Byron Castillo is ecuadorian, way back before the qualifiers had even started.

what jurisdiction does FIFA have to just stomp all over those decisions? I suspect none. The media storm over this is disgusting and speaks very ill of the people that run chilean football.

Like I saw him break down during a game. Regardless of how it goes he should sue for defamation.

Can Ecuador counter sue if FIFA does some bs to kick them out?

Yes, he should probably sue that filthy mexican outlet, azteca deportes, who whipped up a shitstorm today implying they had insider knowledge of a FIFA decision to ban Ecuador when they've already issued a correction to say that they never had such a thing and they wrote all that slander off of the chilean lawyer's claims.

Is Castillo even good?

Didn't Chile try to Sue in 2018 to get Peru taken out as well to get in?

he's pretty good. it's a mistery to me that our other rb of the same age, preciado, plays for genk in belgium while castillo is about to be sold to some mexican club. but oh well. his entire professional carreer has been derailed by this bullshit.

I have no idea if the chilean federation has tried anything similar before.

It's so funny seeing this when the sole argument is that he was born on the other side of the border as if the rest of his life doesn't matter.

Then you see European NTs and try to figure if there's one "authentic" NT left and no one says shit :lol:

Yea I asked my dad and where this dude is from is literally on the border.

Yea Ecuador doesn’t make sense on why they didn’t handle this when Uruguay mentioned it 5 years ago.

As for why he isn’t at a better club/league. I feel non Argentinian/Uruguayan/Brazilian players don’t get away with the Italian/Spanish grandma bs straight to eu passport. Falcao’s grandfather or great grandfather was British and they wouldn’t give him a passport and he was on rivers first team at like 17/18.

Also for a SA player not from those 3 countries they basically have to come as a starter for whatever club they go to. To waste a non eu spot.

That Valle team in Ecuador all the players would be in Europe after their Liberatores run if they were born in Argentina

FIFA have told Chile to piss off. As I said, it was a disgusting media storm created by crooks in the chilean federation and certain shady characters in mexican media, and picked up by idiots in british, american media.

Haha the Chilean lawyer now wants Colombia to sue haha.

But yea they did it last time trying to get Peru kicked out now this.

Win on the field.

Congrats Ecuador again. Has a very promising and exciting young team.

Chile and Colombia on paper have better squads but that’s just because more guys play in Europe. They didn’t make it count when it matters.

More pissed that Peru fking beat Colombia at home to knock us out than Ecuador qualifying.

Peru had literally no one on their team. I really hope they don’t fk up in the play off!!

Apparently Australia made it after a 0-0 draw and PKs versus Peru.


For some reason this qualification game took place in Qatar, the very place they wanted to avoid during the summer for the very tournament they're trying to qualify into.

I imagine it was a very dull 0-0 and players are suffocated and exhausted.

That was a huge effort. Played 16 of 20 games away from home due to the Covid period, and qualified. Not a fan of coach Arnold but credit where it's due.

The game was cagey, with both sides trying to avoid making mistakes. Players were cramping up a lot by the end of it. Thought Australia weren't very clinical at all, but hung in there.

Peru goalie was probably the worst goalie ever in a shootout.... literally just went left every shot at goal except for the 5th shot which actually went left

When Austrilia changed their goalie during Pks I laughed and was like yup.... that's what they wanted. Not sure if it was the heat or if those are two of the worst teams I have ever seen play but yea the game was super dull.

Congrats to Australia and now you owe all of us hot girls celebrating and being on the hot girl cam during the WC. Do not fail us

Apparently no LGBTQ flags allowed in Qatar World Cup because "they are a muslim country and you have to respect their culture"

Make what you want of that. Are they gonna prosecute gay players as well?
