2022 WC late breaking news

Post by Rookie »

Big news in South America with Ecuador set to expelled from the WC this year for playing an illegal player in 8 of the 18 qualifiers, if this happens I reckon It will be shite fight for who goes in.

By the letter of the law should the highest ranked team not there which is Italy but both Peru and Chile believe they should take the spot

Hold on people

Give it to Ukraine. ;-) Would never happen but what a great gesture it would be from the other nations to give them a 'wild card' entry.

It should be Peru with Colombia playing off against Australia. I'm not sure why Chile think they deserve it and italy have nothing to do with Conmebol.

So FIFA rules state if any teams were to be booted then it would be the highest test ranked team hence Italy. Then Chile have said well they beat us twice with the illegal player which means if those games were reversed the 6 points would see Chile jump both Ecuador and Peru.

Anyway FIFA have said nothing to see here but I can’t see any explanation on why

I hope Italy don't get the spot as they simply don't deserve it, they failed to qualify despite having a relatively easy group.
The older I get the better I was.

It should be a South American team if a team cheated in a South American qualifier.

Presumably Peru were the next ranked. Let the play off game go ahead. If Peru lose put them if, when they win put Chile in.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Then read columbia instead of chile.
