Through a statement, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee dismissed the charges against the Ecuadorian Football Federation and ordered that this nation participate in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The ruling leaves the Chilean eleven out of that competition. In this regard, the president of the Chilean Football Federation (ANFP), Pablo Milad, announced that he will appeal FIFA’s decision.
The manager was surprised by the ruling and said that the legal team is waiting for him to prepare the appeal.
He added that the ANFP is willing to use the legal tools available to it and will also go to the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS).
For his part, the president of the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF), Francisco Egas, said that FIFA’s decision to dismiss the complaint was an act of sports justice.
“We celebrate it more because we feel trampled by the great campaign of the Chilean Federation…”
