On February 4, 2020, Reyna scored his first professional goal in a 2–3 defeat to Werder Bremen in the DFB-Pokal Round of 16. In doing so, he became the youngest goalscorer in German Cup history. On February 18, 2020, Reyna became the third-youngest player ever to appear in a knockout game of the UEFA Champions League when he came on as a substitute in the 57th minute against Paris Saint-Germain. Nine minutes later, Reyna set up Erling Håland’s game-winning goal for Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Round of 16, becoming the youngest American to play and record an assist in a Champions League fixture.

Notes

Personal life

Giovanni is the son of former Glasgow Rangers, Sunderland, Manchester City, and United States player Claudio Reyna, and Danielle Egan, a former member of the United States women’s national soccer team. Reyna was born in Sunderland, England, giving him the chance to represent England internationally. Reyna started his international career by playing with the United States’ youth teams, but after impressing with Borussia Dortmund, he attracted interest from the Portuguese, English, and Argentine national teams, all of whom he is eligible to play for. Ultimately, all speculation was put to rest on March 5, 2020, as Sports Illustrated quoted him as saying “I’m aware of the rumors, but it’s quite clear for me. I only want to play for the United States. That’s my home country.”

He was named after his father’s former Rangers teammate Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
