Gio Reyna scored a brace in Borussia Dortmund’s Cup semi-final match

The majority of the United States men’s national team players in Europe are having an outstanding season with their respective clubs this year. Sergiño Dest became the first American to play and win in the Copa del Rey final earlier last month. He also became the third USMNT player to win a trophy, with Weston McKennie being the first one by winning the Italian Super Cup with Juventus and Zack Steffen the second by winning the league cup with Manchester City.

Another American in a cup final

Now Gio Reyna could be added to the list of USMNT trophy winners this season, thanks to his brace against Holstein Kiel, Borussia Dortmund advanced to the cup final on Saturday. The 18-year-old scored in the 16th and 22nd minute of the match in Dortmund’s 5-0 victory in the semi-final of the DFB-Pokal.

The 18-year-old became the second American to score in a DFB-Pokal semi-final after Thomas Dooley did it back in 1990 with Kaiserslautern. The United States international has scored 7 goals and given 8 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions this season.

Borussia Dortmund will plate RB Leipzig in the cup final on 13 May, which means that an American will lift the trophy no matter what, since Tyler Adams plays for the Red Bull Arena side. Also this is the only title that both teams can lift this season, with Bayern Munich closing in on the league title this year.
