Usain Bolt Scores Two Goals On Competitive Football Debut

Multiple Olympic Champion and Jamacian national, Usain Bolt scored two goals at his football debut as a professional player for Australian A-League team, Central Coast Mariners.

Bolt scored the two goals, third and fourth goals to secure a  4-0 win in the second half of the club friendly match with Macarthur South West.

Bolt celebrated his win with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

He said: “My first start and scoring two goals, it’s a good feeling.”

“I’m happy I could come here and show the world I’m improving. I’m keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team.”

Bolt, 32, joined the A-League club in August for an ‘indefinite training period’. He retired from athletics in 2017 and ventured into his dream of playing professional football.

The Australian A-League season begins on 19 October although he’s yet to be offered a contract.
