Usain Bolt fires his first professional soccer goals

Usain Bolt controls the ball during the pre-season match between the Central Coast Mariners and Central Coast Football

I've tried to prove myself, I've tried to get better.

The 32-year-old eight-time Olympic gold medallist is trying to transform himself from global athletics superstar to professional football player and hopes to win a contract for the Mariners ahead of the 2018-19 Australian top flight campaign.

Bolt made a promising start and was chased down as he looked to race through on goal in the opening few minutes, before he played a role in the opener.

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

Just a little 10 minutes later, Bolt's constant pressing yielded results for him when he was right in front of the goal to make the best of a confusion and collision between South West United's defender and goalkeeper. In celebration, he gave his trademark Lightning Bolt to the crowd.

The latest was a five-out cameo in Game 2 against the Yankees in which he gave up homers to Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez. For our ALCS roundtable, the SI MLB staff contemplated when-or if-they would have started Price against the Astros.

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. "I'm keen to be a Mariner, and get into the team".

His second came in slightly more fortuitous circumstances as a defensive mixup between keeper and defender saw the ball fall to Bolt, who rolled the ball home into an empty net.

"I have been improving but you won't know what level you're at until you play a competitive game so I just have to go out there and see what I need to do or whether I should continue or not".

Usain Bolt wants to be a footballer more than anything in the world. "There's a slight improvement but not very much".

Bolt had a number of other chances before being substituted in the 75th minute, but struggled early in the game to maintain possession.
