Former Atletico Madrid winger, Yannick Carrasco, and Carlos Junior reduced the deficit for Al-Shabab.

The highlight of the match was when Senegalese forward, Mane, was brought down by an opposition defender, who pulled the winger's jersey as he raced away.

Al-Nassr took to social media to share a photo of the moment with the hilarious caption translated as follows:

"If you want [an] Al-Nassr shirt, You can order it from [the Al-Nassr Store]."

Mane lasted 86 minutes of the game as the visitors left the King Fahd Stadium with all three points.

The former Liverpool and Bayern Munich attacker has been a key figure at Al-Nassr since joining the club in the summer transfer window, as reported by the BBC.

Mane complains to Cristiano Ronaldo

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane was frustrated at half-time during the game between Al-Nassr and Al-Shabab in the Saudi Pro League.

The Senegalese forward endured a difficult game and was replaced late in the second half as the Knights of Najd secured a hard-fought away win.

Cristiano Ronaldo continued his scoring run after converting from the spot in the first half before Anderson Talisca added a brace in the second-half.

Mane and Ronaldo celebrate Founder's Day

Sports Brief also reported that Sadio Mane and Ronaldo joined their teammates in celebration of Saudi Arabia's Founders Day.

The players were all spotted wearing beautifully woven traditional outfits as they took part in the oil-rich kingdom's annual event.

In a video shared on social media, Al-Nassr stars were dressed like royalty as they observed the day with smiles on their faces.
