Rising star Mabil rewarded with Midtjylland extension
Recent Caltex Socceroos debutant Awer Mabil has crowned a magnificent fortnight by signing a long-term contract extension with FC Midtjylland.
The 23-year-old winger has put pen to paper on a deal that will see him stay with the Danish club until 2022.

It comes as deserved reward for Mabil, who has worked tirelessly to improve his game and force his way into the Midtjylland’s first-team plans after arriving from Adelaide United in 2015.
"Awer has shown mental strength, partly through his two loans, but also largely by returning to FC Midtjylland and seizing the opportunity," said Midtjylland Director of Football Svend Graversen.
"His defensive game has improved, but most importantly there has been end product in Awer’s attacking game in the form of assists.
"In the long run, we are confident that he will score goals too."
Mabil has supplied five assists and has one goal to his name in nine Superligaen appearances this season.
He also scored his first Caltex Socceroos goal on debut in last Tuesday morning’s international friendly against Kuwait.
