Chile have lost its appeal to replace Ecuador at FIFA World Cup in Qatar. FIFA dismissed Chile’s argument that Ecuador player Byron Castillo was actually Colombian and ineligible to play in qualifying games. Castillo played in eight of them for Ecuador. Had Ecuador forfeited all eight games, Chile would've risen to fourth automatic qualification place in South American qualifying group.
