The African champions have already sealed their spot at next year's tournament in Ivory Coast and will engage Rwanda in the final game of Group L, as reported by the BBC.

In a video shared on social media, a fan who was struggling to get a photo with the ex-Liverpool star was allowed to have his moment with Mane.

The 2022 African Player of the Year requested the fan take the photo with him despite resistance from security personnel.

Mane left Bayern Munich to join Al-Nassr in the summer transfer window and has since become a fan favourite in Saudi Arabia.

Mane, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, helped the Knights of Najd to win the Arab Club Cup championship after they beat Al-Hilal in the final.

The duo have contributed eleven goals in the league as Al-Nassr bounced back from a slow start.
