Video of Reyna’s excellent performance in Dortmund shirt
Borussia Dortmund’s 6-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach appeared a ripple. Gio Reyna returned to the starting lineup for the first time since August but the American star was unable to play the full 90 minutes.
After only 27 minutes of rolling the ball, the nightmare of a hybrid injury followed the player born in 2002 and left the field to make way for Julian Brandt. On the way off the field, Reyna sobbed and he seemed to feel frustrated because he was constantly injured this season.
The regular “friendship” in the hospital bed made Reyna only make his fifth Bundesliga appearance this season and he scored twice. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but the young talent will have to undergo a medical to determine how long he needs to be sidelined.
The new injury comes at a bad time for Reyna as he could continue to be ruled out of the national team call-up in March. The US team will play the final three matches in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in search of a place to fly to. Qatar later this year.
As for Dortmund, they will be heading for a comeback against Rangers in the Europa League without the service of the 19-year-old young star.
