Senegal star, Sadio Mane, was not having a great evening in the first half for Al Nassr on Friday, April 19.

The forward blazed a penalty over the crossbar against Al Feiha in a Saudi Pro League match played at the King Saud University Stadium, also known as Al-Awwal Park.

The former Liverpool star, who also received a yellow card minutes before his miss, could have brought his side level after Feiha had taken the lead courtesy of a Fashion Sakala strike.

Here is the video of Mane missing the penalty:

As reported by Sport Star, Cristiano Ronaldo was missing from the squad after receiving a two-game suspension following his red card for elbowing an opponent in their 2-1 loss to Al-Hilal in the Saudi Super Cup semifinals.

Abdulelah El-Amri made it 1-1 in the 72nd minute after an assist by former Manchester United left-back Alex Telles.

The 2022 African Player of the Year made amends, scoring twice in the 76th and 82nd minutes, following assists from Otavio and Al-Khaibari.

Drama ensued late in the game after Sakala was given his marching orders.

Al Nassr went on to win the game 3-1, maintaining their spot at second in the league with 68 points after 28 games.

Mane reaches new milestone

Mane reached a new milestone after scoring in Al-Nassr's 8-0 demolishing of Abha at the start of the month.

The former Southampton forward and Ronaldo were unstoppable as the Knight of Najd continued their devastating run of form, as reported by ESPN.

Mane scored his tenth goal of the season after netting Al-Nassr's third of the night at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium.

Sports Brief reported that Mane expressed delight following the Teranga Lions' back-to-back victories in the March international break.

He scored the only goal as Senegal defeated Benin in Amiens to wrap up their preparations for June's World Cup qualifiers.

The former Premier League star was also on target as the 2021 Africa champions thrashed Gabon.
