20 year old Barcelona II defender Godswill Ekpolo Elohor who is part of the foreign based players invited for Nigeria-23 friendly game against their Brazilian counterparts is currently having his best season in two years.

Last season injury ruled him out for the majority of the season and in his absence the B team got relegated and they now campaign in the third division where the Nigerian is thriving as a full back from either side of defence.

He has so far played in 20 games for the team who are currently 9th on the log standing in the Spanish third division with 6 yellow cards to his name making him one of the players who has played more games this season.

Although he is yet to score this season he is known for his abilities in front of goal as he proved for the Barcelona Juvenile squad where he was one of their captains when they won the 2013 UEFA youth league.

In that tournament he played in almost all their games picking up assists and scoring four times along the way which earned him a professional contract with the team.

Injuries slowed down his progress to the main team but this season he has trained once with players of the Barcelona all conquering first team and after putting behind his injury worries he will be eyeing a spot in the main team in a not too distant future.
