You just knew it was going to happen, didn’t you? There’s something about Gio Reyna suiting up for the United States Men’s National Team that makes an impending injury feel 100% inevitable. He managed to make it 46 minutes against Japan last Friday, but his luck ran out on Tuesday when he pulled up with a muscle injury against Saudi Arabia.
Thankfully, the injury (allegedly) isn’t serious, with Edin Terzic confirming in a press conference yesterday that Gio would miss 7-10 days. While this isn’t too disastrous, it does at least mean that he won’t be able to play against Sevilla in a critical match in the Champions League next week. Thankfully, though, Salih Özcan and Youssoufa Moukoko will be back, which will give Dortmund a strong chance to win this weekend against Köln.
- Reinier felt that he “lost two years of his career with BVB.” I’m just saying, maybe if he had actually been a halfway decent player, he would have gotten more out of his time here.
- An interesting article by Kicker explaining how teams that tend to favor possession in the Bundesliga have been struggling massively this season.
- Footy Scran Friday: Boring-ass baby potatoes in a spicy sauce at Man City Women. This is a disgrace to Women’s football and I will not stand for it. They deserve equal pay, equal recognition, but most importantly, equal scran. I better see some mushy peas next time.
