Usain Bolt scores twice for Central Coast Mariners in win over Macarthur

Usain Bolt has scored his first two Central Coast Mariners goals in an A-League trial match against second division club Macarthur South West United.

Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt is no more outrunning the fastest men in the world but the sprint great, it seems, will continue mesmerising his fans on the football turfs in Australia.

Just a little 10 minutes later, Bolt's constant pressing yielded results for him when he was right in front of the goal to make the best of a confusion and collision between South West United's defender and goalkeeper.

Playing in a central striking role, he scored his first in the 55th minute to put Central Coast 3-0 up with a powerful left-footed finish after racing onto a Ross McCormack through-ball. "I'm happy I could come here and show the world I'm improving", Mail Online reported.

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.

The retired sprinter is trying to launch a football career down under, after hanging his spikes up previous year having won eight Olympic gold medals.

"To score two goals, it's a good feeling, it's what I'm working towards, I try to improve myself, I try to get better and I'm doing that".

He promptly produced his famous lightning bolt celebration.

His second goal came in the 68th minute when Bolt pounced on a defensive error to tap home from close range.

"This will determine. (what) the club want to do with my career, so it's a very important game", Bolt said on Wednesday.

"He fits in very well and he has made enormous improvements".

"His speed endurance is a little bit better but he still looked exhausted after 15-20 minutes".
