Finally, some welcome news for USMNT fans – Gio Reyna will recover from his injury in time for the World Cup.
The US-teenager picked up a muscle strain in an international friendly 0-0 tie against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
Reyna was in the middle of one of his textbook performances when he played the ball out and subbed himself off in the 30th minute.
Reyna’s off-the-ball movement, on-the-ball dribbling, and field vision are essential to the USMNT surviving the group stages, so with Reyna’s long history of hamstring injuries, the USMNT faithful was concerned to see him leave on an unplanned substitution.
Uncle Sam’s Army can breathe a sigh of relief – Borussia Dortmund head coach Edin Terzic told reporters on Thursday that Reyna will be out for up to 10 days as the strain heals. The 19-year-old US international will miss Dortmund’s Champions League clash against LaLiga-side Sevilla, per ESPN.
Let’s hope Reyna can stay healthy till November and beyond as the USMNT makes their much-anticipated return to World Cup action.
