David Edú García Mitogo (born 18 May 1990) is an Equatoguinean footballer who plays for Spanish club CD Arenteiro as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Bata, Equatorial Guinea, Mitogo moved to Spain at the age of only three. He began his youth career with CD La Morenica, and later joined SD Ponferradina as a cadet; however, he was dissatisfied with his time at the club and returned to his previous team at the end of the season.[1]

At 16, Mitogo ultimately returned to Ponferradina to complete his formation.[2] He made his senior debut with the reserve side, in the fourth division.[3]

On 20 September 2009, aged 19, Mitogo made his first appearance for Ponferradina's main squad, in a third level match against SD Eibar, scoring the only goal of the game in the process.[4] Still mainly registered with the B's, he appeared in a further six games for the first team as they finally achieved promotion to division two.

Playing for Ponferradina B against CD Huracán Z on 24 October 2010, Mitogo suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, being sidelined for six months.[5]

International career[edit]

In April 2010, Mitogo was called by the Equatoguinean national under-20 team for the second match against Gabon in the 2011 African Youth Championship qualifiers (preliminary round).[6] He scored the Equatoguinean goal, in a 1–1 draw.[7]

In late July 2010, Mitogo received his first callup for the full side, for a friendly with Morocco on 11 August.[8] He came on as a substitute for Juan Mbela in the 67th minute.

Personal life[edit]

Mitogo came from a multiracial background. His white father, whose surname is García, was Spanish, while his black mother, surnamed Mitogo, was a Fang.[1]
