Dortmund teenager Reyna makes history with three-assist display against Freiburg


Giovanni Reyna Borussia Dortmund 2020

Giovanni Reyna has become the first American to record three assists in a match in the top five European leagues in 12 years.

Reyna was at the heart of his side's performance, grabbing assists on Dortmund's first three goals — two of which were scored by Erling Haaland.

Haaland got on the end of a through ball from Reyna in the 31st minute to open the scoring, before the teenager provided an assist for Emre Can off a corner kick just after half-time.

With 66 minutes on the clock, Haaland grabbed his second of the game after another incisive through ball from Reyna.

Reyna was taken off to a standing ovation with 10 minutes to play, before Felix Passlackrounded off the scoring for Dortmund with a goal in stoppage time.

With his virtuoso display onSaturday, Reyna became the first American to record three assists in a match in a top-five European league since Steve Cherundolodid so for Hannover in March 2008.

Reyna was instrumental in helping Dortmund snap an early-season losing streak, with Lucien Favre's side having lost 2-0 to Augsburg last weekend before falling 3-2 to Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup on Wednesday.

Dortmund had to deal without Jadon Sancho and Roman Burki against Bayern, with both players sidelined due to a respiratory infection. Neither player was able to recover in time for Saturday's match,with sporting director Michael Zorcaddressing their statuses before the game.

"It did not work out for today, both are not ready to play,"ZorctoldSky in Germany.

Zorc also spoke out about Sancho's transfer status, as the England international has been linked with a move to Manchester United for several months.

"We had clear agreements with him that he could make a transfer under certain circumstances, up to a certain point in time. And then the door closed," Zorc said.
