Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Reyna, Sargent, and more

Giovanni Reyna made his Bundesliga debut last weekend for Borussia Dortmund and will now look to follow it up at Signal Iduna Park.

Friday could mark the 17-year-old’s home debut, should he see the pitch against Cologne. Lucien Favre’s side is coming off a comeback 5-3 road win over Augsburg last weekend, in which Reyna became the youngest American player to appear in the Bundesliga. He played 21 minutes in the match, getting his first taste of life in Germany’s top-flight. Dortmund defeated Cologne 3-1 back in August and will need three points to avoid falling out of the top four.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen take on Hoffenheim in Bundesliga play while Weston McKennie and Schalke face a trip to Bayern Munich. FA Cup play resumes this weekend with Duane Holmes and Derby County visiting lower league Northampton Town, Tim Ream and Fulham visiting Manchester City, and Matt Miazga and Reading hosting Cardiff City.

  1. Without a reliable forward option still, at least it would be good to see a decent midfield in the future: Pulisic on the wing, Reyna as the attacking mid, with McKennie and Adams as the central duo behind Reyna. If only they can all see the field at the same time.

    • And hopefully Weah w;ill recover and regain his form. We really have an abundance of promising midfielders. Just to name a few more, Pomykal, Aronson, Hyndman, Ledezma plus holdovers Morris and Lletget.
