Bolt scores two goals in friendly match

Usain Bolt will get the chance to show he belongs in the A League when he starts for the Mariners on Friday night

Bolt, who has also had training sessions with Borussia Dortmund, Mamelodi Sundowns and Stromsgodset, was given his first start for Central Coast Mariners for the friendly against Macarthur South West United on Friday.

He was understandably buzzing with his goal and proceeded to celebrate in the only way he knows how to - by doing his trademark pose.

"Scoring a goal in your first proper match, the first start and scoring two goals, it was a good feeling", Bolt told Fox Sports.

"I'm keen, that's why I'm here to play my best and to try and get into the team", he added.

"It was a big deal, scoring a goal in my first real match is a big deal".

McCormack and Jordan Murray scored the Mariners' other goals in their 4-0 win in their final pre-season hit out.

The first goal saw him shrug off a defender and fire a low left-footed shot under the keeper, who should have done better with the effort.

Ross McCormack and Usain Bolt forming a formidable strike partnership in Australia might not have been on the cards just a few months ago.

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 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.

"I think [Bolt] can make it".

Bolt was in the starting lineup against a second-tier National Premier League combined team representing Sydney's southwest region.

After plenty of hype before the game, they labelled it "one of the most memorable games in Australian football history".

"He fits in very well and he has made enormous improvements".
