Americans Abroad Player of the Week: Gio Reyna


Gio Reyna’s slow start to 2021 feels like a distant memory in the wake of his current run of outstanding form.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is playing his best soccer of the season at the moment, and his two-goal effort in Dortmund’s DFB Pokal semifinal win against Holstein Kiel.

Reyna’s latest gem earned him SBI’s Americans Abroad Player of the Week honors, kicking off his May in style after an impressive April.

Here are the other Americans Abroad standouts from the past weekend:
