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

Ross McCormack played a key role as Usain Bolt stole the show on his friendly debut for Australian club Central Coast Mariners.

While the club will be analysing Bolt's progress, the Mariners coach just wants to see "a smile on his face" at the end of the game, with the 32-year-old still working his way towards peak condition. I'm just happy I got the chance and I'm proud of myself.

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

His impressive first goal came from a strong run and fierce finish and the second was a tap into an empty goal following a collision between Macarthur's goalkeeper and a defender.

'Changed Forever': Florida Panhandle devastated by Michael
President Donald Trump announced plans to visit Florida and hard-hit Georgia early next but didn't say what day he would arrive. Forecasters have said that Michael could make landfall in the Florida Panhandle as a Category 3 storm or possibly greater.

"Slight improvement if you want to say that but his touch is still very poor", Bosnich, now a Fox Sports commentator, said during the match.

Bolt is still on trial in Australia and is not guaranteed a place in the squad. After a much-publicized training stint with German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in March, Bolt signed for the Mariners for an "indefinite training period" in August.

Wearing the No. 95 jersey - a reference to his 100-meter world record time of 9.58 seconds - Bolt lined up as a central striker and played for 75 minutes before being substituted.

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

Premier left 'upset' after protesters disrupted racing promotion at Opera House
MORE than 3000 people descended on the Sydney Opera House overnight to protest the Racing NSW projections on the iconic building. The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.

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

In terms of his defensive stats Bolt would predictably struggle to match up with his fellow professionals, but we all know gamers would throw him either on the wing or up top to burn defenders with his blistering pace. I try to get better and I am on the way to doing that.

He has said he hopes to play for Manchester United one day.

"It caught me surprised and I panicked a bit and over-kicked the ball".

Tua Tagovailoa opened Alabama's game vs. Arkansas with a ideal stat line
At the same time, the Razorbacks needed to play practically a flawless game to have a chance to pull off the upset. A flawless example was the 32-yard running play by Rakeem Boyd, Arkansas' biggest rushing play of the game.

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.
