Usain Bolt Scores Two Goals On Professional Football Debut
Jamaican sprint legend, Usain Bolt, has scored his first professional football goal on Friday in a pre-season game for Australia’s Central Coast Mariners.
Starting up front in his maiden game for the club, 32-year old Bolt who is unrelenting in his desire to get a professional contract and play professionally, scored a double against Macarthur South West United in Sydney.
What. A. Game. @usainbolt, the footballer scores two goals in our 4-0 win. ⚡️

He scored his first goal with his left foot after some poor play from their opponents allowed him to slot in a goal in the 55th minute of the game.
There was still enough time for the Jamaican to score a second goal in the 69th minute as he capitalised on a defensive mix-up before he was substituted six minutes later with his team leading 4-0.
Bolt joined the A-League club in August for an indefinite trial after retiring from the track in 2017.
