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.
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.
