Sprint king Usain Bolt fulfilled a boyhood dream Friday in making his much-anticipated football debut, exciting fans but tiring quickly in a 20-minute cameo for Australia's Central Coast Mariners. The Jamaican superstar, a huge Manchester United fan, has been handed a chance to train with the A-League side for an indefinite period in a bid to prove he has what it takes to earn a professional playing contract.His arrival has generated a massive buzz at the club's base in Gosford, 75 kilometers north of Sydney, and some 10,000 people packed the Central Coast Stadium – a virtually unprecedented turnout for a preseason game.
