2018 World Footvolley Classic
Paraguay: Nelson 'Canela' Santa Cruz & AJ Mendonca
Paraguay comes into South Beach with the reputation of World Beaters; but will journey-side of Canela & long-time partner Mendonca provide one-last hooray or is the tank empty? Santa Cruz is surgical and cerebrial. Perhaps the most intelligent footvolley player for a long time in the World. Santa Cruz allows the ebbs and flows of a match to not in any manner deter from his focus on winning. Santa Cruz is 75% of the team. He scores at will when given the chance. Rarely receives a serve. Mendonca is the Robin; but a worthy partner who comes up with big defensive plays and has mastered placing his sets at the net for Santa Cruz to deliver the goods. Not the flashiest team; but one nobody feels comfortable wagering against!
