PLAYER PROFILE

Kevin Molino (born 17 June 1990) is a Trinidadian footballer who currently plays for Orlando City in Major League Soccer.

After playing for several years in the TT Pro League, with San Juan Jabloteh and Ma Pau SC, Molino signed with Orlando City in the USL Professional Division on 18 March 2011. He scored his first goal for his new club on 14 May in a 1–0 win over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Following two seasons with Orlando, Molino had week-long trials with PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands and Zulte Waregem of Belgium in hopes of continuing his career in Europe. However, on 13 March 2013, it was announced that Molino had re-signed with Orlando for the 2013 USL Pro season. On 10 January 2014, Molino signed a new two-year contract with Orlando City which would keep him at the club when they transition into Major League Soccer for the 2015 season despite heavy interest from other MLS and foreign suitors. The deal made Molino the first player signed to Orlando’s MLS roster.

Molino began the 2014 USL Pro season, the club’s final season in the league, with 15 goals in his first 21 matches, the most in the league at that point in the season. Molino tied the league single-season goal scoring record of 15 shared by Dom Dwyer and Jose Angulo on 16 August 2014 with six games left in the season. Two games later on 23 August 2014, Molino scored in a league match against the Richmond Kickers to bring his goal tally to 16 for the season, setting the new single-season record in the process.[8] Molino concluded Orlando City’s final USL Pro season with a goal against the Richmond Kickers, raising his final record-tally to 20 as Orlando City won its third Commissioner’s Cup in four years.

On May 2, 2015, during Orlando City’s friendly against Ponte Preta, Molino tore his ACL and was expected to miss the remainder of the MLS season.

Molino has represented Trinidad and Tobago at international level. He was named in Trinidad’s 2010 Caribbean Championship squad, and made his international debut versus Guyana on 4 November 2010.
