Club career

Born in Madrid, Borja arrived in his hometown club Atlético Madrid's youth system in July 2001, aged eight. He made his senior debuts in the 2009–10 season, scoring 12 goals for the reserve team in the third division.

On 15 May 2010, in the campaign's last round, Borja made his first-team and La Liga debut, coming on as a substitute for Tiago Mendes in the 58th minute of the game against Getafe CF. Twenty minutes later, however, he was stretchered off with a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury on his left knee, in an eventual 0–3 home loss.[1]

Seven months after his injury, Borja re-appeared with Atlético B, as a substitute in a 1–0 win over CP Cacereño. After the match, he stated: "I'm very happy. I've passed really bad times and I've suffered, but now I'm prepared to help the team go up in the league table."[2]

In late August 2011 Borja was loaned to Real Murcia, freshly promoted to the second level.[3] On 30 August of the following year he moved to SD Huesca also in a temporary deal,[4] scoring nine times for the latter during the season as it ended in relegation.

On 28 August 2013, Borja joined Deportivo de La Coruña on a two-year loan.[5][6]

International career

Borja represented Spain's under-17 at the 2009 FIFA World Cup in Nigeria. As the national team finally finished in third position he scored five goals, with teammate Sergi Roberto adding three.[7]

Borja's father, Miguel González Bastón, was also a footballer. A goalkeeper, he also played with Atlético – but only with its reserves. Subsequently he represented Real Burgos CF during seven years, playing in ten top division games in three seasons combined and winning one Ricardo Zamora Trophy in division two.[8]

After his second club disappeared in 1994, Bastón retired from football.
