Gio Reyna’s frustrating season at Borussia Dortmund will come to an early end after the U.S. men’s national team star suffered his latest injury on Friday.
Borussia Dortmund announced Sunday that Reyna will miss the remainder of the season due to a muscle and tendon injury. Reyna was substituted off 77 seconds into Dortmund’s 2-0 road win over Stuttgart on Friday, adding more frustration to an injury-plagued season for the 19-year-old.
The U.S. men’s national team attacker missed most of the Bundesliga season due to a hamstring injury suffered in September 2021 on international duty. Reyna recently returned to action for Borussia Dortmund and the USMNT, but will now watch from the sidelines as Marco Rose’s side aims to push for the league title.
He scored two goals in the opening months of the league season last summer, but only totaled 90 minutes once in 2022 at club level. Reyna played in all three match World Cup Qualifiers for the USMNT in March, helping Gregg Berhalter’s side clinch an automatic berth to Qatar.
Reyna will now prepare for involvement with the USMNT this June for the start of the 2022-23 Concacaf Nations League group stage.
