Dortmund's Giovanni Reyna to opt for United States over England, Argentina
Borussia Dortmund's Giovanni Reyna has attempted to end speculation about his international future by committing himself to the United States national team.
The midfielder, 17, is eligible to play for Argentina, Portugal and England, but after playing for the USMNT at the under-15, -16 and -17 levels, he is set on breaking into the senior side.
"It's very clear for me: I will only play for the United States, that's my home," Reyna, the son of former U.S. internationals Danielle Egan Reyna and Claudio Reyna, told Ruhr Nachrichten.
Gio Reyna could have represented Argentina because of his father's family, England because he was born there and Portugal because he holds a Portuguese passport.
Reyna is set to make the first trip to the U.S. senior side in March, when Gregg Berhalter's team takes on the Netherlands and Wales.
Having been promoted to Dortmund's senior team during the winter break, Reyna has featured in every match for the Bundesliga club since.
He scored in a 3-2 DFB Pokal defeat at Werder Bremen and set up Erling Haaland for his spectacular winner in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain.
Without a goal in Bundesliga, Reyna could become the youngest non-German to score should he find the back of the net in the remaining 10 matches of the season and the second youngest all-time scorer in Germany's top flight.
