Usain Bolt scores two goals on first start for professional side

Usain Bolt scores two goals on first start for professional side

Bolt, 32, earned his first start within his high-profile trial with the Hyundai A-League side and the fixture was dubbed as the key opportunity to secure his first professional football contract.

He scored his first in the 57th minute when he shrugged off a defender on the left before unleashing a hard, low shot past the goalkeeper at the near post.

And his second goal came in the 68th minute when he capitalised on a defensive error to tap home from close range.

"My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling", he said.

"I'm happy to show people that I'm improving my game and I want to be a Mariner and join the team". "I'm keen. That's why I'm here, to play my best and to try and get into the team".

He scored the two goals in the second half for the club in a friendly.

Bolt added his second of the evening by taking advantage of some outrageous defending before rolling the ball into an empty net.

McCormack, who is now on a season-long loan at the A-League club from Championship side Aston Villa, turned out for the Whites between 2010 and 2014, scoring 53 times in 140 appearances.




In their final game before competitive football returns in Australia, Central Coast smashed their amateur counterparts 4-0. He also performed his trademark celebration after scoring his first.

"I'm just pushing myself and have put in the work so now I have to go out there and execute".

"I think I've improved in every area".

Bolt retired from sprinting in 2017 holding the 100- and 200-meter sprint world records and has spent the past year trying to become a professional soccer player.

Here's hoping Bolt continues to impress and earns himself a contract with Mariners.

"My positioning is much better, I'm doing much more in space, I'm running in space much better".

Previously, the Jamaican trained with Borussia Dortmund as well as clubs in Norway and South Africa.

The A-League season begins next weekend, as Central Coast goes up against Brisbane Roar on Sunday, October 19.
