Brighton’s Ecuador trio get the go-ahead for the World Cup

Ecuador – and its three Albion players – look set to claim their place at the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

FIFA’s Appeal Committee has dismissed a ban action against one of its players.

Moises Caicedo, Pervis Estupinan and Jeremy Sarmiento are part of the Ecuador squad.

The Chilean FA filed a complaint with the game’s world governing body against Byron Castillo, who allegedly wasn’t born in Ecuador, arguing that Ecuador should abandon the World Cup qualifiers in which he had played.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee closed the case in June, but the Chileans appealed, leading to a new hearing before the Appeals Committee.

But that, too, has now been dismissed with FIFA’s statement: “Among other considerations, (the Committee) was of the opinion that, based on the documents presented, the player should be considered to be the holder of permanent Ecuadorian nationality.”

The Chilean FA could now take their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but time is running out for Ecuador as they face the hosts in the tournament’s opening match on November 20.

Chile claimed Castillo was born in Colombia and claimed to have documents proving he was never eligible to play for Ecuador.

However, Argus contacts in Ecuador were always convinced that their side would go to Qatar.

Leading radio presenter Aurelio Davila dismissed the recent Chilean protests as “the last steps of a drowning man”. Brighton’s Ecuador trio get the go-ahead for the World Cup
