Chile Is Trying To Get Ecuador Booted From The World Cup

Some of the spiciest World Cup drama is happening months before the tournament itself begins.
On Friday, FIFA rejected a bid from Chile to remove South American rival Ecuador from the tournament.
Chilean officials claim that Ecuador’s star defender Byron Castillo lied about his age and nationality, and was actually born in Colombia.
Even if the claims are true, it’s not clear whether they would actually make Castillo ineligible to compete for Ecuador.
Chile plans to appeal its case.
