[R] Calling any method within default method!

Good night dear!
For years I have a problem that I have avoided with the use of the switch
function, but now I want to solve by following the good practices of object
orientation (OOP).
My function was created to generate experiments according to some input
parameters. Therefore, the first argument does not have a class defined as
"data.frame", "matrix", etc., so that from the generic, specific methods can
be called.
I made a simple example to show my problem.

foo <- function (x, ...) UseMethod ('foo')

foo.default <- function(x,
                        a = 10,
                        b = NULL,
                        cc = 2,
                        dd = 3,
                        type = c ('brazil', 'argentina'),

  ty <- match.arg(type)

  obj <- list(a = a,
                 b = b,
                 cc = cc,
                 dd = dd)
  class (obj) <- paste ('foo',
                                  sep = '.')

  res <- foo(x = obj, ...)

foo.brazil <- function(x, ...){
  a <- x$a
  cc <- x$cc
  res <- a + cc
  return (res)

foo.argentina <- function(x, ...){
  cc <- x$cc
  dd <- x$dd
  res <- sqrt(cc + dd)
  return (res)

foo(a = 1)

If anyone has any light I thank them immensely.
