SYDNEY AUSTRALIA- OCTOBER 12 Usain Bolt of the Mariners celebrates scoring a goal during the pre-season friendly match between the Central Coast Mariners and Macarthur South West United at Campbelltown Sports Stadium

"I think my movements and my touch [have improved]".

He pulled out a Fortnite dance to celebrate his second goal, emulating the triumphant moves in the popular video game.

Bolt expressed his delight at his headline-grabbing debut, saying: "My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling".

And Bolt could not miss from the five-yard box.

Bolt also spent a minute of the first half on the ground in pain after being struck in the groin by the ball. "But the more you play, the more you learn and you get more accustomed to the game".

After his goals he was eventually substituted in the 75th minute. He did well to a control chipped ball played by Scotland striker Ross McCormack and held off the Macarthur defender.

Usain Bolt blew a golden opportunity very early in the match.

The former Rangers forward scored one and set up another.

After the game, Bolt spoke to Fox Sports and was excited about his accomplishments. My vision needs to improve a little bit more. United plays in a second-tier competition.

As the World Health Organisation says, "there is no health without mental health " - it is just as fundamental to our wellbeing as any physical illness.

The world record holder for 100m and 200m, with this performance made his case for breaking into the main team of the Mariners ahead of its A-League season that will kick off on October 21.

"This is going to be a big game". I think it will determine if the club makes up its mind on what to do with my career.

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.

Since his underwhelming first appearance in late August, Bolt has undertaken intensive training sessions in a bid to work on both skills and fitness, yet for the first 45 minutes the improvement looked to be minimal.

Usain Bolt earned a lot of critics after he announced his decision to take up football post his retirement from athletics.

The Jamaican sprint king was gifted the chance when a through ball fortunately had the opposition's defender slipping over to approach it.

"There's a few first-team boys in the team for Friday". "Until then", he said, "I'm still just normal Usain".

The 32-year-old Jamaican found the net in the 57th and 68th minutes of a 4-0 win. "I've been improving quickly", Bolt said Friday.

Mariners coach Mike Mulvey said last month that he would wait until January before assessing the progress of Bolt. "My position is much better".
