Bolt's brace gives Central Coast Mariners 4-0 win

Postado Outubro 12, 2018

Usain Bolt has scored his first and second goals for A-League side The Central Coast Mariners today and people are naturally desperate to try him out on Federation Internationale de Football Association 19.

The Jamaican scored the Mariners' third and fourth goals in the 56th and 68th minutes of Friday's clash against Macarthur South West United.

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

After a relatively quiet first half, Bolt came alive in the 57th minute when he showed his pace and strength to outmuscle a defender and buried a left foot strike past Eze Consoni.

After the match, Bolt was elated having scored twice to prove himself and felt he was happy to have scored in his first start for the club.

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.

The partnership with former Leeds and Aston Villa man Ross McCormack and Bolt already has the potential to surpass the pairing of Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.

The retired eight-time Olympic gold medalist sprinter is trying to secure a place with the Mariners for this season, which begins for the Mariners on October 21 against the Brisbane Roar.

Bolt is a Manchester United fan, and while things are not going well for the Premier League club now, they aren't quite bad enough to justify handing him a contract, or even a trial.

Just over 10 minutes later, he capitalised on a defensive mix-up to pick up a loose ball and tap in from a few metres out.

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

"It's the most important thing for a footballer is his touch".

Fox Sports commentator Mark Bosnich said although there were some slight improvements, Bolt still had a long way to go.
