Jul 14, 2015 | 1 comment

Former football star Oswaldo de la Cruz, 53, offers football classes to the youth of Cuenca. He is married and has two sons.

You may have seen Oswaldo performing his talents with the soccer ball in the streets of Cuenca. If you do see him, be sure to say hi, he was once a player on the Ecuador National Team. Due to a serious injury, he was no longer able to continue in his soccer career.

Motovation: “As an ex professional football player I desire that the young adults of Cuenca and all of Ecuador dedicate themselves to education and sports and turn down alcohol and drugs.”

(“Yo como un ex futbolista profesional pido a toda la juventud de Cuenca de toda mi país que se dediquen al estudio al deporte, y decirle no al alcohol y las drogas.”)
