“Cedar Stars Academy has given me a high level of training competition for the past four years and this has helped me get notice for other trials abroad,” Mendez said. “Getting my first call up for a national team ,and because of the high level of training I receive with CSA, I performed well and was invited back to keep on training with the U17 Honduras National Team to prepare for the World Cup next year.”
Mendez has been a focal point of Cedar Stars Academy – Monmouth’s U16/17 success thus far this season, starting 14 matches as a member of the team’s back line.
