Engonga was born in Torrelavega, Cantabria. During his career, spent mainly in Spain's lower leagues but also comprising three La Liga matches, one for Real Valladolid and two with Racing de Santander, he retired as a footballer in 1999, aged only 30.
Shortly after Engonga took up coaching, managing for a brief period Equatorial Guinea, which featured former fellow professionals in Spain Rodolfo Bodipo and Benjamín Zarandona. Subsequently he served as technical assistant to his brother Vicente, when the latter was in charge of the national team.
Engonga comes from a football family. His father, Vicente, was also a footballer who left Equatorial Guinea in 1958 and settled in Torrelavega, playing for Gimnástica de Torrelavega and other teams in the region. Óscar is the youngest of four brothers (all former players), the most prominent being older Vicente, who represented Spain at UEFA Euro 2000; Óscar and Vicente coincided at Gimnástica – with siblings Julio and Rafael – and Valladolid in the 1991–92 season.
