Gio Reyna, 16, was Borussia Dortmund's 26-player traveling squad for its two-game summer trip to the United States, where it will play friendlies against the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday and Liverpool in Notre Dame, Indiana, on Friday

Reyna only played his first game for the Dortmund U-19s last Friday, scoring a spectacular goal in a 4-0 friendly victory over TSG Sprockhoevel. Only one other player from the U-19s -- Immanuel Pherai -- was called up for the tour.

    Dortmund coach wants to see how Gio conforms to the oppositions older seasoned players, as well as to what he can bring to the team table. Soccer IQ and technical skills will test his Soccer IQ and ability to handle pressure. Good luck Gio.

    One of the most exciting young teams in the world.
