KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The Central Coast Mariners, a team in Australia's top soccer division, defeated Macarthur South West by the final of 4-0.

Bolt, 6 ft 5 in, was surprisingly agile to bring down a loose ball and then fire the ball under the Macarthur South West goalkeeper at his near post.

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

He hopes to win a permanent contract with the Mariners, and his two goals on Friday will have done nothing to harm his chances.

In the 55th minute, Bolt received a ball close to the six-yard box but despite pressure from the defender, he held his ground and netted in a low strike to score his debut goal.

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

Former World and Olympic champion, Usain Bolt is scoring his way into the hearts of people all over the world again, this time as a professional football.

"He covered himself in glory tonight and I think that everybody is super pleased for him. you've got to take your hat off to him". It is unclear when Bolt will play next.

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

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

"However, it should not be forgotten that the opposition in this match was not the same standard as Bolt will face should he secure a contract to play in the A-League".

The Olympic great said it was likely he would know his future based on his performance, with the A-League season starting on October 19.

Bolt saw his first action for the Mariners on August 31, playing 20 minutes against a Central Coast selection side. His touch on the ball and ability to evade defenders is still very much a work in progress, as is his positioning and vision.

"I thought as long as I got the guy off my shoulders, I can set up the shot and make sure I hit the target".

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