Usain Bolt scores two goals on first start for professional side

On Friday, Bolt scored two goals in his first start for the Central Coast Mariners in a trial match that he hopes could pave the way for a professional contract as a soccer player.

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

Bolt emphasised how important the fixture would be in his quest to earn a contract prior to the game and responded with a second-half brace - although neither of the goals were classics.

Bolt's value to 2017-18's bottom side is in his off-field appeal and with A-League starting in just seven days' time, the Central Coast Mariners will need to calculate just how much that outweighs his performance on the pitch.

Bolt made a promising start and was chased down as he looked to race through on goal in the opening few minutes, before he played a role in the opener.

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.

Bolt doubled his tally minutes after the first strike by tapping in from close range following a mixup between a Macarthur defender and the goalkeeper.

On his first global trip as president, Mr Trump visited Saudi Arabia and announced $US110 billion in proposed arms sales. During one pause, Trump seemed to acknowledge the oddness of the moment, saying, "That was quite something".

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

There were rumors Bolt could have made an appearance for English Premier League club Manchester United, largely eminating from the man himself and owing to his professed love of the club. I try to get better and I am on the way to doing that.

Witnessed by more than 6,000 people at the stadium, Bolt broke into his trademark celebration move after the first goal.

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

Usain Bolt wants to be a footballer more than anything in the world.

"Slight improvement if you want to say that but his touch is still very poor", Bosnich, now a Fox Sports commentator, said during the match.

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