Nuts and Bolt! Sprint legend grabs brace after painful kick

  • SYDNEY AUSTRALIA- OCTOBER 12 Usain Bolt of the Mariners celebrates scoring a goal during the pre-season friendly match between the Central Coast Mariners and Macarthur South West United at Campbelltown Sports Stadium

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

Bolt headed a McCormack cross over the bar and failed to connect from close range with a volley as he continued his pursuit of a goal in the second half, which finally bore fruit in the 55th minute.

Bolt expressed his concerns that Friday's match would determine his future with the club as he strives towards winning a professional contract and a place with the Mariners for the season, which beginnings on October 19.

"I'm happy to show people that I'm improving my game and I want to be a Mariner and join the team".

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. His first came by scoring 10 minutes into the second half with a left-footed finish after shaking off a defender.

Despite his accolades, he's always insisted that he'd like to get involved in football and has even talked about trials with clubs such as Manchester United.

A glorious opportunity came and went for Bolt just before the interval as he headed wide from Oar's searching cross, with Murray showing him how it should be done soon after.

"My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling", Bolt, 32, said.

Bolt pointed to the sky in his trademark "lightning bolt" celebration, but the world's fastest man still had more to offer.

'I'm keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team'.

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

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

Rather than leave him on to net a hat-trick, Bolt was taken off shortly after and told TV he was thrilled to show the world the improvements he had made.
