See Usain Bolt's first career goals as a pro soccer player

See Usain Bolt's first career goals as a pro soccer player

Usain Bolt got off the schneid in his new professional soccer career scoring two goals for the Australian A-League's Central Coast Mariners.

He hopes will pave the way for a professional contract with the Mariners ahead of their 2018-19 A-League campaign.

"I'll always give time to the Mariners for giving me the opportunity to prove myself to the world".

The Jamaican then capitalized on a defensive mix-up to score his second on 69 minutes before being substituted 6 minutes later with the score at 4-0.

The former Rangers forward scored one and set up another.

"They've seen me training, they've seen what I'm capable of and now they need to analyse".

Bolt put the Mariners 3-0 up in the 55th minute after a strong left-footed finish, celebrating with his trademark "Lightning Bolt" pose.

Bolt is not yet officially signed to the team, but he said his strong performance on Friday might help his odds of getting on the regular season roster.

Around three lakh people from low laying cyclone vulnerable areas of coastal districts have been sheltered at 1112 relief camps. The students' union poll across the state scheduled for October 11 has been cancelled, Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi said.

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.

"It was my first proper game and I'm just happy I got a chance", Bolt said. United plays in a second-tier competition.

After being used as a winger in his first brief trial appearance in late August, Bolt hinted at a positional change for the match at Sydney's Campbelltown Stadium.

Since retiring in summer 2017, he has trained alongside club teams in South Africa, Jamaica and Norway, plus had a much-publicized visit with Borussia Dortmund in March.

He played the entire second half against the North Shore Mariners on September 19, when he alternated between left wing and forward.

"Better than Lukaku", they said.

McCormack, who is now on a season-long loan at the A-League club from Championship side Aston Villa, turned out for the Whites between 2010 and 2014, scoring 53 times in 140 appearances.

"That comes with the fact that I don't have a lot of experience on the field".
