Reyna’s record at Borussia Dortmund

Reyna was born in England during his father Claudio’s time at Sunderland. He moved to the United States at the age of five, as his family settled in New York, and joined the academy ranks at New York City FC in 2015.

After four years spent catching the eye in the Big Apple, the highly-rated midfielder spread his wings and headed for Germany as fellow countryman Christian Pulisic had done before him.

Impressive progress was made in Dortmund, to the point that a senior debut was made for Bundesliga heavyweights against Augsburg at the age of 17 on January 18, 2020, breaking Pulisic’s record as the youngest American to appear in the German top-flight.

A first professional goal was recorded in the DFB-Pokal meeting with Werder Bremen on February 4, before going on to make his Champions League bow later that month.

Reyna found the target in a Bundesliga fixture for the first time in September 2020, against Borussia Monchengladbach, and delivered a hat-trick of assists in a league clash with Freiburg a few weeks later.

He was voted U.S. Soccer’s Young Male Player of the Year for 2020 and went on to inherit the No 7 shirt at Dortmund from Jadon Sancho in the summer of 2021.

In August of that year, during an outing against Hoffenheim, Reyna became the youngest player to reach 50 appearances in the Bundesliga.

On an international stage, his debut for the United States came during a meeting with Wales on November 12, 2020 – the day before his 18th birthday.

He recorded as first goal for his country in his next match, converting a free-kick against Panama, and he recently helped the USMNT to book their place at the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar.
