Club career

Prior to his moving to Canada, Radziński began his playing career as a youth with Cujavia Inowrocław in his native Poland, and Germany's VfL Osnabrück. He joined the North York Rockets of the Canadian Soccer League in 1990 and remained with the club through the league's demise in 1992 to the club's last year, played in the National Soccer League (NSL), in 1993. He played in the summer of 1994 with the St. Catharines Wolves (of the same league which however was by then renamed to the Canadian National Soccer League).

Radziński returned to Europe, joining Germinal Ekeren in Belgium in 1994. From there he eventually signed for Belgian giants Anderlecht for whom he scored 57 goals in 90 appearances – including five UEFA Champions League strikes in his last season with the Belgian champions - before moving to Everton for around £4.5 million, the highest transfer fee paid for a Canadian up to that time.

At Everton, Radziński scored 25 times in 91 Premiership outings before requesting a transfer, eventually securing a three year deal with Fulham F.C. worth £1.75 million. Radzinski wasn't as prolific at Fulham as he was in his previous side, but won over the fans with several crucial goals. Radzinski was released at the end of the 2006-07 season by new manager Lawrie Sanchez, totalling 17 goals in 117 appearances.

On August 28 2007, he signed for Greek team Skoda Xanthi, on a free transfer. One year later, on August 30 2008 he signed a 1 year contract for the Belgian Second Division club Lierse, although his previous contract still applied until 2010. Lierse first had their eye on Peter Utaka, but when he was transferred to Odense, they chose to attract Radzinski. Radzinski had disclosed to the press his belief that members of Skoda Xanthi had been involved in match fixing and was seeking a transfer.

International career

Radzinski made his debut for the Canadian national team in a June 1995 friendly match against Turkey. He earned a total of 46 caps, scoring 10 goals.[1] He has represented Canada in 17 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[2].

He also holds a Belgian passport through his marriage.
