In addition to that, this statement released by FIFA, in the for of Ecuador has the signature of Anin Yeboah, the vice president of the FIFA disciplinary committee.

    The reason behind Chile denouncing Byron Castillo

    Chile filed the complaint against Byron Castillo because of the use of a false birth certificate, also giving false age declaration, and false nationality. It signified that the player was primarily Colombian, but of Ecuador nationality, which is basically fraudulent. This issue gained momentum in Ecuadorian territory, even before the time, when the complaint was lodged to FIFA.

    The matter went to such an extent that Argentine coach Gustavo Alfaro didn’t use Castillo during an important part of the qualifying rounds, primarily to check with the competent authorities to ensure his papers were in order. Ultimately, Castillo was the part of 8 of 18 matches, that La Tri played.
