As the United States and Canada clashed late last night in a bid to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, a notable face was clearly lacking from the American squad. Borussia Dortmund’s own Giovanni Reyna couldn’t joint the proceedings, apparently due to a hamstring strain he had suffered prior to the match. Gio is also now guaranteed to miss the USMNT’s match on Wednesday against Honduras, so he will likely travel back to Dortmund as soon as possible to begin training with his club.

It is currently unclear whether he will be able to face Bayer Leverkusen with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. Gio Reyna has been a key player in BVB’s squad so far, starting all three matches in midfield in the the Bundesliga. A hamstring strain isn’t the worst case scenario, but it can still linger for a few weeks and can lead to a more serious injury, so Dortmund’s coaching staff may choose to rest him on Saturday even if he feels fit to play.
