This Wednesday Inter Milan beat Juventus 4-2 for the Italian Cup final and, after the match, Arturo vidalChilean striker, celebrated with his teammates and shared a photo with Felipe Caicedo in the locker room that raised controversy over the case of Byron Castillo’s nationality.
“Champions, brother. This one is Ecuadorian,” wrote the “King” Vidal through his Instagram account with Felipe Caicedo, referring to the claim that Chile has been filing against Ecuador for the possible misregistration and irregularity regarding Byron’s nationality Castle.
As it is recalled, Chile went to FIFA to investigate whether Byron Castillo has a false nationality and instead of being Ecuadorian, he would be Colombian. In this sense, the ‘red’ team hopes that if they give up the points from the games they played against Ecuador and in which Castillo participated, they could qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
At the moment, FIFA issued a statement indicating that it is reviewing the case and that perhaps in the next few days it will be able to determine what the final resolution of the case will be.
“FIFA has decided to open disciplinary proceedings in relation to the possible breach of the call criteria for the indicated matches. In this context, the FEF and the Peruvian Football Federation have been invited to present their positions before the FIFA Disciplinary Committee. More details will be published soon, ”says the FIFA statement.
