Usain Bolt Finally Scores His First Two Goals In Professional Football – Watch Video

Usain Bolt, 32, has finally scored his first two goals in his trial match for an Australia’s Central Coast Mariners to boost his chances of becoming a professional footballer.

The 100m and 200m world record holder retired from athletics in 2017 and has since said it would be a “dream” to play professional football. He has previously trained with Borussia Dortmund, South African club Sundowns, Norway’s Stromsgodset, then joined the A-League club in August for an “indefinite training period”.

The Jamaican eight-time Olympic sprint champion and world’s fastest man scored the Mariners’ third and fourth goals in a 4-0 win over Macarthur South West on Friday and celebrated with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

For his opening goal, Bolt ran on to a chipped ball played by Scotland striker Ross McCormack, held off the defender and finished powerfully low past the goalkeeper.

He capitalized on a defensive mix-up for his second, with a Macarthur defender and goalkeeper colliding to leave Bolt able to tap in from close range.

After the match, Bolt who wore No 95 shirt, in reference to his world record time over 100m said:

“Dreams become reality through hard work”.

“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.”

The Australian A-League season begins on 19 October and the Mariners are yet to confirm whether Bolt will be offered a contract.
