USMNT stars Gio Reyna and Weston McKennie are wasting no time finding the back of the net in the UEFA Champions League.
Yesterday’s opening kick-off saw multiple Americans taking the field, though none shined as brightly as Dortmund’s Gio Reyna and Juve’s Weston McKennie.
In the Dortmund-Copenhagen game, Reyna subbed on midway through the first half, wasting no time in dishing out a delicious assist.
Before the game was through, Reyna had himself another, helping cap off Borussia’s 3-0 victory.
Reyna has been struggling with lingering hamstring issues for what feels like years now. It’s a relief to finally see him back, just in time for the World Cup.
In the later games, Weston McKennie joined his Juventus side after the half, brought on to help make up for a 2-0 deficit to PSG (but mostly Mbappe). McKennie wasted no time in securing a point for his team, which could prove crucial in case of a goal differential tie-breaker.
McKennie scored the only goal for Juventus on the day.
US defender Sergiño Dest made his highly-anticipated AC Milan debut in the 57th minute of their 1-1 tie with RB Salzburg.
Elsewhere, Champions League Christian briefly subbed on for Chelsea during their 1-0 upset loss to Dinamo Zagreb.
