Born in Luanda, Mendonça moved to Portugal in January 2000 at only 17, signing with Varzim S.C. in the second division, and scored ten goals in 30 games in his first full season, which led to top flight promotion in 2001. He appeared in 28 matches in the following campaign (18 starts, two goals), with the Póvoa do Varzim side retaining its league status.
From 2003 to 2007, after a brief loan, Mendonça appeared regularly for Varzim, with the club again in the second level. He returned to the main division in 2007–08, but played in only 14 games for C.F. Os Belenenses and C.F. Estrela da Amadora combined, which prompted a return to his previous team, still in level two; whilst with Varzim, on 10 February 2007, he scored the 2–1 home winner that ousted giants S.L. Benfica from the Portuguese Cup.
Mendonça was picked for the squad that appeared at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, a first-ever for the country. He played in all three group stage games – 270 minutes – at the Palancas Negras managed two points; additionally, he participated in two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
