Liverpool star Sadio Mane was rushed by young fans on Thursday night who wanted selfies and autographs following Senegal's draw with Nigeria, and was visibly frustrated.

Mane's side fell short of victory, due to a late equaliser from Manchester City's Kelechi Iheanacho. 

The Liverpool forward appeared to get frustrated with fans who were clumsily pushing him as he tried to exit the field at Barnet FC's The Hive Stadium in London, where the friendly was being played.

A host of players were targeted after the final whistle but Mane and Arsenal's Alex Iwobi appeared to draw the most attention due to their roles at high profile clubs in England. 

Mane didn't come into the game until the 64th minute of the match, which ended 1-1.

"He is fine, it is normal to have this reaction [as a top player]," Cisse said in his post-match press conference. 

Earlier in the night, Mane was happy to take photos with fans, but he ultimately ended up frustrated.
