Awer's footballing passion started as a young boy with his parents in a Kenyan refugee camp. After settling in Australia, Mabil utilised this natural ability, signing for local A-League side Adelaide United, and becoming one of the club's youngest debutants at 17 years and 118 days.
In 2015, Mabil secured a move to Europe, creating a home in Denmark with Danish champions FC Midtjylland.
In 2020, he played a telling role in Midtjylland’s title-winning campaign as they won their first championship since his arrival.
He then lived out his lifelong dream of playing in the UEFA Champions League, where the Danish club were drawn alongside Liverpool, Ajax and Atalanta.
Best Socceroos moment:
Mabil came on as a substitute in Australia's 4-0 victory over Kuwait in October 2018, scoring a goal on debut. However, the match was remembered for Mabil and childhood friend Thomas Deng, both refugees from South Sudan, making their international debuts in the same match.
Between 2012-2015, Mabil became one of the league's most prolific wingers with hometown club Adelaide United.
