He has always said he wanted to play professional football and good enough to play, today Friday when he had the chance he took and scored two good goals for Mike Mulvey’s team.
Bolt first goal was sublime, he used his speed and strength to power his way through.
On his first goal he did his trade mark celebration that has been know with him since he started sprinting. On his second goal he had a fantastic Seahorse dance with one of his team mates.
Great Credit to the Jamaican for pursuing his dream of professional football, he has been very successful in athletics, made a lot of money through that and an international superstar, he doesn’t have to put himself through rigorous daily training as a footballer but he just wanted to pursue his first love, football. what a great man.
