Igor Angulo Alboniga (born 26 January 1984) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Polish club Górnik Zabrze as a left winger or a striker.[1]

Club career

Athletic Bilbao

Born in Bilbao, Biscay, Angulo joined Athletic Bilbao's youth setup in 1996, aged 12, after starting out at Danok Bat CF. He made his debut as a senior with the farm team in 2002, in Tercera División.

Angulo made his first-team — and La Liga — debut on 23 March 2003, coming on as a late substitute in a 1–2 away loss against Celta de Vigo.[2][3] In June, he was promoted to the reserves in Segunda División B.[4]

On 30 December 2004, after appearing in only three league matches with the main squad, Angulo was loaned to Segunda División's Gimnàstic de Tarragona until the end of the season.[5] After featuring regularly he returned to the Basques, and renewed his contract on 19 October 2005.[6]

On 25 July 2006, Angulo moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining French Championnat National club AS Cannes in a season-long loan deal.[7] Upon returning, he was again assigned to the B-team.[8]

On 21 July 2008, Angulo cut ties with the Lions.[9]

Spain

On 21 July 2008, Angulo moved to Écija Balompié in the third level along with Athletic teammate Aitor Ramos.[10] In his second season at the Andalusians he contributed with nine goals in only 19 league matches, being the team's top scorer;[11] highlights included a hat-trick in a 6–2 home routing of Jerez Industrial CF on 10 January 2010.[12]

On 1 February 2010, Angulo signed a two-and-a-half year deal with division two side CD Numancia, after his contract was terminated at Écija.[13] He made his debut three days later, playing the last 29 minutes in a 3–1 home win over UD Las Palmas.[14]

Angulo rescinded his contract with the Rojillos on 22 July 2011, after only starting sparingly in the campaign. He signed for Real Unión hours later,[15] scoring a career-best 13 goals in 2012–13, being team top scorer and being linked to a number of clubs also in the third tier.[16]

Abroad

On 5 August 2013, Angulo moved to the Cypriot First Division with Enosis Neon Paralimni FC.[17] On 21 November, aged already 29, he scored his first professional goal, netting in a 1–3 home loss against AEL Limassol.[18]

Angulo switched clubs and countries again on 14 September 2014, joining Football League Greece's Apollon Smyrni FC.[19] He continued competing abroad in subsequent seasons, in the Superleague Greece with Platanias F.C.[20][21] and in the Polish I liga with Górnik Zabrze,[22] being crowned top scorer for the latter team in 2016–17 as they returned to the Ekstraklasa as runners-up;[23][24] his strong form continued in the top tier, as his 23 league strikes saw him end the campaign as the second highest goalscorer at the age of 34, while Gornik finished fourth and qualified for the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League (their first continental participation since 1994).[25]

International career

Angulo won seven caps for Spain at youth level, including two for the under-21s. He made his debut on 2 September 2004, starting and playing 68 minutes in a 3–1 win against Scotland in Alcoy.[26]
