Club careerEdit

The player started his career with two local clubs in the lower divisions, first at hometown side Al-Ishaqi and then Al-Balad. In 2004, he moved to first division club Salahaddin where he spent only a season before making his name at Samarra becoming the club’s main striker and match-winner and is fondly remembered by their fans.

His move to Baghdad giants Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya came about after he was one of the provincial players called into the national team after the appointment of German Wolfgang Sidka in 2010 and roomed with Al-Jawiya’s Ahmed Ayad – who was the go-between with the player and the Al-Jawiya club officials and after he was given his release papers by Samarra, he signed for the famous club.[1]

He helped Iraq to the World Military Cup in the 2013 CISM World Military Cup where Hamadi was the tournament’s top scorer with nine goals in Baku. Hamadi is a poacher in the six-yard box and has been one of the most prolific goal scorers in the Iraqi league scoring almost 100 goals in his six seasons with the Blue Falcons in the league including 27 goals in a single season in his second season at the club where he was league top scorer for the first time in his career.[1]

On 1 December 2016 Hammadi received offers from clubs in Qatar, Baniyas club in United Arab Emirates and Al-Shabab FC in Saudi Arabia to play to their team.[2][3]

International careerEdit

He played his first match for the national team on 17 April 2012 against Egypt, and on 14 November 2012, he scored his first goal for the national team against Jordan.
