The Ecuadorian team imposed its authority in the Al Khor stadium. In the opening match of the World Cup, the South American team beat Qatar 0-2 and then drew 1-1 with the Netherlands. Joy overflowed among the fans of La Tri. But regardless of what they achieve at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Gustavo Alfaro’s team will have to settle some pending accounts in the Byron Castillo case.

This controversial case gave a lot to talk about before the start of the World Cup. Ecuador’s participation in the World Cup was questioned many times, until the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued its decision.

Byron Castillo was born in Tumaco, Colombia, in June 1995. The Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) would have shown false documentation so that the talented soccer player could represent Ecuador. Although the selections of Chile, Peru and Colombia were waiting for the decision on this case, the sanctions will be paid in the future.

Ecuador forced to pay after Qatar 2022

The FEF would have to pay some $100,000 fine dollars for presenting Castillo’s false documentation. In the event that the Chilean federation demands compensation, this figure would rise to $10 million dollars. This amount, although it would not be cheap at all, could easily be paid for with the $9 million dollars that they will receive for participating in Qatar 2022.

Finally, from a sporting point of view, Ecuador will also face some consequences. For the South American qualifiers with a view to the World Cup in Mexico, the United States and Canada, La Tri will begin the qualifying process with three fewer points.
