From Chile: Italy, not Chile, in the World Cup instead of Ecuador
In South America, this condition continues to hold. Ecuador finished fourth in the qualifying track, thus taking the last of the four that belong to South America. Chile demands that Ecuador be denied the results of the eight qualifying matches that Castillo played, the opponent automatically awards three points for each game. If the disciplinary committee agrees to the accusation, Chile will qualify for the 2022 World Cup against Ecuador.
Italy into the World Cup really?
The odds behind everything seem very low. It is true that according to the regulations it is possible that they will be expelled, but this type of practice, if confirmed, risks more than anything else for Ecuador the imposition of possible fines or penalties for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

So let’s see what the official FIFA procedures will lead to. Which so far has become real and thus effectively turns into news to follow after many weeks of suggestions.
