Lelo on ball in Paraguay

PARAGUAY GOALS: Lelo Sejean will play in this year's Super Copa Paraguay.

Geelong soccer player Lelo Sejean will play for Atlantida Asuncion in this year’s Super Copa Paraguay when it kicks off next month.
“(The club president) finalised my registration last week at the Paraguay FA, as soon as I arrive I can start playing,” said the 27-year-old said.
“I’m currently the only foreigner on the squad and feel really fortunate to be part of it.”
The cup runs until November and the winning club of the tournament will play-off for a spot in the Copa Sudamericana, South America’s second best Champions League.
The Belmont winger, who was back in Geelong recently, has been primarily based in Paraguay for the past five years.
Sejean signed with Atlantida in June last year, his third Paraguayan club, having had stints with Sportivo Ameliano in 2013 (Division C) and Sol del Este (Division B) in 2017.
Atlantida Asuncion is part of Paraguay’s Primera B, the third highest league in the football-loving nation.
Sejean also has local soccer ambitions.
“It would be a dream to play for Australia some day – this is an incredible stepping stone,” he said.
“Maybe Geelong could get that A-League team up and running too.”
The Belmont local returned to Australia last year to compete in Athletics Victoria’s 2017-18 season which concludes in March.
In Paraguay, he has represented his state, Alto Parana, in athletics since 2015.
His javelin coach is South America’s record holder Edgar Baumann, who Lelo hopes to eventually bring to Australia for a guest coaching stint.
Sejean’s personal bests in Javelin and long jump are 36 metres and 4.93m
