USAIN Bolt has had two great chances to get a goal on his Central Coast Mariners debut.

The ball fell to the eight-time Olympic champion merely minutes after he came on, but his swivelling shot was blocked.

His second chance came in the form of a corner, which saw the world’s fastest man leap high into the air before having the ball headed away from his reach.

Finally, in the dying embers of the game, Tom Hiariej broke through the defence and put the ball across the box to Bolt, but the 32-year-old couldn’t quite get on the end of it.

“This commitment was agreed between Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners before his training period commenced with the club.” Bolt made his debut for the club when he came on in the closing stages of a trial match against a Central Coast select side earlier this month.

“I think the big fellow did OK,” Mariners coach Mike Mulvey said of Bolt after that game.

Kane scored six goals in Russia – once against Colombia, twice against Tunisia and a hat-trick against Panama – as he led England to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

However, the Tottenham striker was less clinical in the semi-final defeat to Croatia – unable to convert a gilt-edged chance in the first half to send England into a 2-0 lead.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Nations League opener against Spain, live on Sky Sports, Kane said: “I think I could have done better at the World Cup if I’m totally honest.

“I remember coming back and talking to people about it, that to win a Golden Boot at a World Cup and think you could do better is exciting because it means there’s lots of improvement and I’m at a high level already.

“I feel fully fit, we’ve come back and started the season well from a club point of view so hopefully I can take that into the games here.”
