In November 2021, Team USA Footvolley, with Will Lobato and Nick Mendonca, reached the Championship Match of Nations Cup before losing a thriller to Paraguay.
In Nations Cup, Team USA faced various Tour squads with different nationalities. Lobato/Mendonca were on fire that weekend. Losing to Paraguay is respectable.
Since then, Team USA Footvolley have faced an Argentine squad of Tour athletes Jose Vidal & Julian Conditi in September of 2022. In that match,
with regular starters unavailable Team USA went with veteran Sergio Menezes and Will Lobato. The US won that match.

‘Although we will be bringing in some incredible athletes from Brazil – it should be noted that we are fortunate to have such depth of talent here! We don’t necessarily have to fly in so many folks from across the Atlantic, or from South America, to challenge our Team USA athletes. We do it anyways; but just from the Tour itself – our American athletes face stiff competition! Let’s see how our National Team players do!’
