He spent his entire career in Spain, but never in higher than Segunda División B.

Kily represented Equatorial Guinea at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Early lifeEdit

Kily was born in Avilés, Asturias, Spain to a Spanish mother and an Equatoguinean father, never knowing the latter.[1]

Club careerEdit

After finishing his youth career with the club, Kily started playing with Real Oviedo, having the honour of scoring its first-ever goal in Tercera División.[1] He spent his entire career in the Spanish lower leagues, also representing UP Langreo (two spells),[2][3][4] Atlético Madrid B,[5] Orihuela CF, Novelda CF, Marino de Luanco,[6] SD Noja, CD Cudillero and L'Entregu CF.

In 2018, Kily helped La Madalena de Morcín CF to their first promotion ever to the fourth level.[7]

International careerEdit

Kily made his debut for Equatorial Guinea in 2007.[8] He was selected in the squad that appeared at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations on home soil,[9] where on 25 January he scored arguably the country's most important goal, netting in the 90th minute for a 2–1 group stage win against Senegal, which meant the hosts qualified to the quarter-finals at the expense of their opponents.[10][11]
