In his short Bundesliga career, Gio Reyna has not had a performance like he did on Saturday.
The 17-year-old American contributed three assists to lead Borussia Dortmund to a 4-0 win over Freiburg, exiting to a standing ovation from Dortmund fans.
Reyna set up buddy Erling Haaland for two goals, and floated a corner kick into the penalty area for Emre Can to head into the goal. What was amazing was Reyna could have had a
couple of more assists before he left the game in the 80th minute.
The two assists on Haaland's goals showcased so many of Reyna's attributes, his ability to find open space, hold off
opponents, find his teammates and hit weighted passes.
Reyna became the first teenager to record such a hat trick since the Bundesliga began recording assists. He has been involved in
five of Dortmund's seven goals this season, having also scored the first goal and drawn a penalty kick for the second goal in Dortmund's 3-0 season-opening win over Borussia Moenchengladbach.
