Kevin Felida began to take his first steps in the world of football in the youth teams of Spijkenis, a club that plays in the 5th level of Dutch football. At the age of 12 he joined the youth academies of Excelsior, a Dutch Serie B club, and then a year later marrying into the youth sector of Den Bosch, also in B. At 14 he went to play for Brabant, a Dutch 6th level club. 3 years later, he returns to Den Bosch, where he debuts in the first team, exactly on December 1st 2017, at the age of 18 against Go Ahead Eagles.
On 9 June 2021 he made his debut with the Curacao national team, during the World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala.

Kevin is the classic director in front of the defense skilled in the setting phase and, especially, in the interdiction phase. During the season he was deployed in front of the defense, as a midfield inside and as a central defender. In my opinion he can cover both roles in the midfield but not as a central defender, both for physical characteristics, since he is not very tall, and for technical characteristics.
As already mentioned, he is especially skilled in blocking opposing actions. In fact, every game he recovers a significant amount of balls, to then restart the action. He knows how to play both horizontally and vertically, dictating the timing of the match. He has an excellent long range shot and is also skilled at corner kicks and crosses.
Not being very tall, aerial play is not a strong point of him. However, he has good stamina, he is very determined in tackling and he's not afraid. He can still grow his muscles.
Kevin must improve above all in positioning on the field, trying to read the possible offensive plots of the opponents more in advance.
