U.S. Abroad: Reyna returns to action
January 30th, 2002 12AM



On Tuesday, U.S. captain Claudio Reyna played his first English Premier League match since injuring his ankle in a New Year's Day game against Aston Villa. Reyna started for Sunderland in a 1-0 loss to visiting Middlesborough and played 90 minutes. Noel Whelan put struggling Middlesborough ahead in the 14th minute and three minutes later, Reyna had a well-taken shot denied by goalkeeper Mark Crossley. Sunderland was unable to find the equalizer despite dominating possession and playing the final 38 minutes with a man advantage after Gianluca Festa was sent off for spitting at Kevin Phillips. Neither Gregg Berhalter nor Jovan Kirovski played in Crystal Palace's 3-1 loss to Coventry Tuesday. Americans Brad Friedel and Joe-Max Moore have Premier League matches with their clubs Wednesday, when defenders David Regis and Greg Vanney are expected to play for their respective clubs in France.
