FIFA opened a disicplinary case after Chile filed a formal complaint last week alleging that Byron Castillo is Colombian and should not have been allowed to play for Ecuador in eight qualifying games. Ecuador now risks having to forfeit those games — including one win and a draw against Chile — as 3-0 losses.
Ecuador finished fourth in South American qualifying to grab the continent’s last automatic berth for the World Cup. It was drawn into a group with Qatar, the Netherlands and Senegal.
Chile finished seventh, but could vault into the qualifying places if it was awarded six points from its games against Ecuador, along with the better goal difference.
Castillo did not play in games against fifth-place Peru or sixth-place Colombia.
Regardless of the outcome of the case, Peru could yet qualify for the World Cup as it is scheduled to play an intercontinental playoff game against Australia or the United Arab Emirates on June 13 in Doha.
FIFA said it has asked the Peruvian soccer association to submit its position on the Castillo case as well.
The FIFA investigation will look at “allegations concerning the possible falsification of documents granting Ecuadorian nationality to the player,” soccer’s governing body said.
A FIFA ruling is likely needed within a month, ahead of the intercontinental playoffs.
Ecuador’s soccer federation previously rejected Chile’s claims and insisted that Castillo is legally an Ecuadorian citizen.

It is the biggest meeting between these two fierce rivals for years and one that will have a decisive say in the captivating race for Champions League qualification.
Arsenal - fourth with a four-point buffer to Spurs in fifth after four straight wins - make the short trip to N17 knowing that a famous win would confirm their return to Europe’s elite club competition for the first time since the 2016-17 season, although they have a likely difficult task ahead.
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is a master at pulling a result out of the bag in these kind of one-off big games, as both Manchester City and Liverpool have found out since the turn of the year.
