Gio Reyna returns to Borussia Dortmund squad in UCL loss

Gio Reyna’s long-awaited return to make a Borussia Dortmund Matchday squad came to an end Tuesday with the American attacker dressing for the first time this season.

Reyna was an unused substitute in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-0 UEFA Champions League group stage loss to Paris Saint-Germain. The 20-year-old had been sidelined since June due to a calf injury that he suffered on U.S. men’s national team duty.

Reyna had returned to Dortmund training in recent weeks and now look set to play a part during the fall and winter schedule. The USMNT attacker last featured in a 2-0 Concacaf Nations League Finals victory over Canada, a match where he registered two assists before being substituted off at halftime.

Edin Terzic’s squad fell 2-0 at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday, conceding a pair of goals nine minutes apart. Kylian Mbappe’s penalty-kick finish paired with Achraf Hakimi’s goal gave PSG three points in Group F play.

Reyna will seek his season debut on Saturday when Borussia Dortmund hosts Wolfsburg in Bundesliga play. The Black and Yellow are seventh in the league standings, despite remaining one of four clubs that are unbeaten through four matches.
