Description:
Javier Ángel Balboa Osa (born 13 May 1985 in Madrid) is a Spanish-born Equatoguinean footballer who plays for S.L. Benfica in Portugal, as a right winger.

He eventually settled down, even though he missed a part of Castilla's season due to an injury and first team duty. Balboa still finished his first season with 32 appearances with one goal, in the second division.

He was an integral part of the Cantabrian side for the season's duration, scoring in a 2–1 win at RCD Mallorca in the 88th minute, on 16 December 2006.
