Emilio Nsue López (born 30 September 1989) is an Equatoguinean professional footballer who plays for RCD Mallorca mainly as a forward or right winger.

Club career

Nsue was born in Palma, Majorca, Balearic Islands. A RCD Mallorca youth graduate, he made his professional debut for the club on 3 February 2008, playing injury time in a 1–1 draw at Villarreal CF.[1] He added five more minutes the following week in a 0–0 home tie against UD Almería.

For the 2008–09 campaign, Nsue was loaned to CD Castellón in the second division. Regularly used in a comfortable campaign for the Valencian, he scored twice in a home game against Levante UD on 18 October 2008 (4–1).

On 17 July 2009 Nsue was loaned to Real Sociedad, on a season-long move. Although rarely a starter he was an important offensive unit as the Basque ultimately returned to La Liga after a three-year absence.

Nsue returned to Mallorca for 2010–11 and begun the season in the starting XI, the first match being a 0–0 home draw against Real Madrid.[2] On 3 October 2010 he scored his first official goal for the club, heading in from a corner at FC Barcelona in an eventual 1–1 draw;[3] he appeared in all 38 league games and netted four times, with the side narrowly avoiding relegation.

In the 2011–12 season Nsue played in several matches as an offensive right defender, and totalled nearly 2,000 minutes of action (20 starts) to help Mallorca rank eighth. After conversations with manager Joaquín Caparrós during pre-season, it was agreed that he would start the following campaign in that position.[4]

International career

Spain

From an Equatoguinean father, Nsue rejected during several years the offer to represent the Equatorial Guinea national team at senior level. In 2009, after having appeared for Spain at various youth levels, he started playing with its U21s.

Three years later, Nsue refused to play the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations with Equatorial Guinea as he wanted to be a part of the Spanish under-23 team that competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics, but ultimately did not make the final cut.

Equatorial Guinea

In March 2013, accompanied by Federación Ecuatoguineana de Fútbol president Domingo Mituy and footballer Benjamín Zarandona, he signed a contract with the Federation and committed himself to attend all call-ups in which he was included, with the federation responsible for covering the costs and incentives.[5][6]

Nsue scored on his debut for Equatorial Guinea in an unofficial friendly with Benin on 21 March 2013, being team captain and playing the first 45 minutes. He was again captain on his first official appearance, scoring a hat-trick in a 4–3 win over Cape Verde in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier; both games against the latter opponent would later be considered invalid and FIFA awarded two 0–3 losses to the Nzalang, stating the player was not eligible.[7]
