Usain Bolt scores his first 2 goals for Central Coast Mariners

Double delight for Bolt in successful first start

Usain Bolt scores two goals in trial game for Central Coast Mariners

Usain Bolt has scored his first and second goals for A-League side The Central Coast Mariners today and people are naturally desperate to try him out on Federation Internationale de Football Association 19.

Usain Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medallist, is now officially a goal-scorer in professional football.

Bolt, 32, finished with his left foot after some slack marking on 55 minutes, celebrating with his trademark "Lightning Bolt" pose.

"My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling", Bolt told Fox Sports after the game.

Bolt was asked by a Brazilian reporter if he should now be called "Bolt, the soccer player". "I'm keen to be a Mariner, and get into the team".

McCormack added: "The best thing about Usain Bolt is he's so humble".

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

India would also look to address the festering middle-order woes against the touring Caribbeans. Dinesh Karthik, on the other hand, was axed after a dismal performance in the Asia Cup.

Meanwhile, bookmakers Coral have made Bolt 20-1 to play in the Premier League one day.

Just over ten minutes later, he doubled his tally when he capitalised on a defensive mix-up to pounce on a loose ball and tap in from a few metres out.

After the match, Bolt was elated having scored twice to prove himself and felt he was happy to have scored in his first start for the club.

Instead, he was forced to venture to Australia's A-League, and particularly to Central Coast Mariners, in a bid to realise his dream.

Bolt has made no secret of his desire to become a professional footballer once his athletics career reached its concluding chapter, and he has done his chances of achieving a life-long ambition no harm at all through this evening's performance.

"This is what I worked towards, I tried to improve myself, I tried to get better, and I'm on the way to doing that".

Wearing the No. 95 jersey - a reference to his 100-meter world record time of 9.58 seconds - Bolt lined up as a central striker and played for 75 minutes before being substituted.
