Great expectation has been generated by the complaint filed by chili against Ecuadorclaiming for a possible irregularity in the registration of the footballer Byron Castillowhich if accredited could give the “Red” direct tickets to the World Cup in Qatar.
FIFA admitted the Chilean claim, which is based on the possible Colombian nationality of the aforementioned player, cited those involved and also included Peru, which could be affected by this legal dispute.
But in Peruvian lands they are quite cautiousas reflected by the lawyer from that country and an expert in sports law, Julio Garcia.
”I don’t see how Peru could be negatively affected by a possible ruling on this issue in all scenarios. In the most negative or in the most favorable to Chile, Peru would remain as before with 24 points and -3 goal difference”assured the jurist, in dialogue with the program Movistar Sports.
“I think that (the case) will not prosper. Chile is filing a complaint when the possibility of challenging a result has been exhausted. That period is short, because what is sought is to preserve the principle of sports integrity, the results on the field. In most countries it takes three to five days, so it can no longer be claimed, “said the lawyer.
Ecuador qualified directly in fourth place, Peru was fifth and will play the playoff on June 13 in Qatar against the winner of the fourth round of the Asian Football Confederation and Chile finished seventh..
