Gio Reyna’s long-awaited return to the field for Borussia Dortmund finally came on Friday, but it occurred with the Bundesliga side’s Under-23 team.
Reyna featured for Dortmund’s U-23 side on Friday in a friendly against Schalke during the September international break. The 20-year-old missed Dortmund’s opening three matches of the new campaign due to a lingering calf injury he suffered in June on international duty.
However, after two weeks of training with Dortmund, Reyna did participate for the first time this new season.
Reyna enjoyed a positive 2022-23 campaign with Dortmund, scoring seven league goals and adding four assists across all competitions.
He also registered two assists against Canada in June’s Nations League Finals victory in Las Vegas before being substituted off due to his injury.
In total, Reyna has earned 20 caps for the USMNT to date, winning the Nations League on two occasions.
The Black and Yellow sit ninth in the Bundesliga table with one victory and two draws under their belt.
