Reyna's career

Since his senior debut at the start of 2020, the 19-year-old has marked himself out as an exciting talent.

In his first full season with Dortmund, he helped the club to DFB-Pokal success against RB Leipzig, while he has already amassed a dozen caps for the USMNT.

This season has seen him rocked by a succession of injuries, with Friday's setback the latest in a long line that could threaten his hopes of making the 2022 World Cup.
