Juan Ramón Epitié Dyowe Roig (born 12 October 1976), known as Epitié, is an Equatoguinean retired footballer who played as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Manresa, Barcelona, Epitié played in Spain country for the vast majority of his professional career, starting with local Palamós CF in the fourth division. He was signed by two La Liga teams, Deportivo Alavés and Racing de Santander, but never appeared officially for either.

On loan precisely from the Cantabrians, Epitié joined Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv F.C. in Israel in early 2004. He failed to impress, only appearing in one Toto Cup match, and ended up signing with another side in the country, F.C. Ashdod, meeting a similar fate – he was released after a couple of months.

In the 2004–05 season Epitié returned to Alavés, now in the second level, and contributed with three goals as the Basque returned to the top flight. He was however released during the ensuing summer, moving to lowly CD Castellón and also being loaned by this team for a couple of months.

Epitié re-signed with Alavés in January 2007, but was immediately loaned to California Victory. With the North American club he played his first and last games against the same team, the Portland Timbers, in a span which lasted less than one month and ended on 15 July.

In the 2007 summer Epitié returned to his country of adoption, resuming his career in the lower leagues and competing mainly in his native Catalonia.

International career[edit]

As many players born in Spain, Epitié chose to represent Equatorial Guinea through ancestry. On 1 June 2008, he scored one in the nation's 2–0 home win against Sierra Leone, for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
