Teamwork enables international call for Mariners keeper Mendes

Marine keeper Germano Mendes is off on international duty after the EVO-STIK League's Mariners called on the services of Google and the FA!

Signed from groundshare partners AFC Liverpool last season after impressing in pre-season, the stopper has been called up by Guinea Bissau next month to face Cape Verde in Portugal and play in a second behind closed doors fixture in Lisbon a few days later.
