I'm impressed with your powers of observation. I can't see a logo. But I take your word for it.
Don't you think he'd consider asking for a WC to Chile rather than enter normally? Just a guess on my part, but it would perhaps be the cautious thing to do. Avoid further brouhaha if he should have to cancel later.
The only way he can play Santiago is if he asks for a WC, he wasn't on the EL.
