Radhi Shenaishil Swadi (Arabic: راضي شنيشل سوادي‎‎; born 11 August 1966) is a former Iraqi footballer and current coach of the Iraq national football team.

Playing career[edit]

Radhi Shenaishil was born and brought up in Al-Thawra City in Baghdad.

He captained an Iraqi Under 20s team and helped them to top their group which included Spain, Norway and Argentina, who they beat 1–0 with Radhi scoring the winner from a penalty against a side featuring Diego Simeone and Roberto Bonano in the FIFA World Youth Championship in Saudi Arabia in 1989.

In the summer of 1999, he retired from international football after the Pan-Arab Games final loss against hosts Jordan on penalties, where he scored Iraq's only penalty in a 3–1 shoot-out loss. In the same game he also scored an own-goal.

The libero was voted into the Asian Cup select team XI at the 1996 Asian Cup with team-mate Laith Hussein after helping Iraq to the quarter-finals.[1]

Managerial career[edit]

In March 2009, Shenaishil managed the Iraq national team for two friendly matches, against Saudi Arabia and South Korea. On 11 September 2014, Shenaishil was appointed as manager of Qatar Stars League club Qatar SC.[2]

Months before the 2015 AFC Asian Cup started, Shenaishil was named as new Iraqi national team manager, replacing Hakeem Shaker whilst continuing as manager of Qatar SC. The first match under Shenaishil as Iraq coach was a 1–1 draw with Kuwait. He led the team in tournament to a 1–0 win over Jordan in opener and a 2–0 win over Palestine and also a 0–1 loss to Japan and finished as group runner-up behind Japan with six points. His side faced Iran in quarter-final and won 7–6 in penalties after 3–3 draw in extra time. In semi-finals, Iraq lost 0–2 to South Korea and then lost the third place match 3–2 to UAE. He returned to Qatar SC in February 2015, after the Asian Cup ended,[3] but was sacked on 26 October 2015.[4]

On 15 April 2016, Shenaishil became the new coach of Iraq [5]
