San Jose Earthquakes
Godoy signed for MLS side San Jose Earthquakes on 6 August 2015. On 30 November 2017, he signed a new, multi-year contract with the club. He took on the role of vice-captain during the 2018 season.
On 7 August 2019, it was announced that at the conclusion of the 2019 season, Godoy would move to Nashville SC ahead of their inaugural MLS season in 2020. San Jose would receive $650,000 of General Allocation Money in return.
Godoy made his senior debut for Panama in a March 2010 friendly match against Venezuela and has, as of 10 June 2015, earned a total of 49 caps, scoring 1 goal. He represented his country in 14 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and played at the 2011 and 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cups.
Godoy represented Panama in all four of its 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup matches, comprising three group stage matches and one quarterfinal. He tallied one assist and was named to the Best XI of the group stages, but ultimately scored an own goal in Panama's quarterfinal match against Costa Rica and club teammate Marco Ureña, resulting in the end of the tournament for Panama and Costa Rica's advancement to the semifinals.
During the lead-up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Godoy was called up to the squad for friendlies against Denmark and Switzerland on 22 and 27 March, respectively, along with San Jose teammate Harold Cummings. In May 2018 he was named in Panama's preliminary 35 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
