Chile does not give up on its dream of playing in the World Cup: FIFA summons Byron Castillo and Peru

Byron Castillo is one of the fixtures on the World Cup list in Ecuador.

When the Byron Castillo case was believed to be closed, the appellate court of FIFA surprised by setting a time for a new hearing against the current Club León player, whom the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (< /b>ANFP) accuses of being Colombian and not Ecuadorian.

According to Chile's La Tercera, FIFA has already informed the player, the Ecuadorian federation, to the ANFP and the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) so that they are present at the hearing that will be held on September 15 from 2:30 p.m. in Zurich remotely.

Peru was summoned because, according to the aforementioned media, it joined the claims against Byron Castillo after being left out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup at the hands of Australia for the criminal route.

It should be remembered that the ANFP's lawyer, Eduardo Carlezzo, was against FIFA's initial resolution and has repeated on several occasions that the testimony of the side of the 'Tri' could be vital in the case of investigation. In addition, he made it clear that they would appeal yes or yes from Chile.

“Apparently there will not be a specific investigation by FIFA into the player, and that worries me a lot, because when we entered we requested that a hearing be set up to listen to the player. He has to speak and the sporting bodies have to listen. He is the main witness, the main person, the main involved, the main investigated. He has to speak. I am very concerned that FIFA has not called him for a virtual audience to listen to him. I understand that the player would have to appear before FIFA to speak, to give explanations. And the fact that he was not summoned worries me a lot”, declared the lawyer.
