Ace Usain in a Bolt for World Cup glory HE HITS 2 ON DEBUT
USAIN Bolt is being tipped to take Jamaica to the World Cup after lightning struck twice on his full football debut.
The sprint king bagged a brace – his first ever professional goals – for his new Australian club Central Coast Mariners.
His display sent fans into a frenzy and left them dreaming about an appearance in the next World Cup.
They reckon he could add star power to take his home nation all the way to Qatar in 2022.
And the bookies agree. Betway cut odds on Bolt making the national team by almost half to just 9-1.
In typical showman’s fashion, Usain did nothing to dampen their expectations. He tweeted: “Dreams become Reality through hard work. Anything is possible don’t think limits.”
Bolt, 32, who still holds the 100m and 200m world records, wanted to play for Manchester United after retiring from athletics.
And he took his goals like a true striker to help his side beat Macarthur South West 4-0.
Usain sprinted past defenders before arrowing a shot into the bottom corner for his first. His second was a simple tap-in.
He posed in his classic trackside lightning celebration after scoring.
Strike partner Ross McCormack, a former Villa and Leeds player, said Bolt had “fitted in so well”.
