Gio Reyna could get his first USMNT cap vs. Wales. 

CHICAGO – Get ready to see Gio Reyna in action for the U.S. men’s national team.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder was among 24 players called into the squad for a pair of international matches in Europe later this month.

Reyna, who turns 18 Nov. 13, will be seeking his first cap.

Head coach Gregg Berhalter Tuesday named a 24-player roster as the USA prepares to gather in Wales for its second camp of 2020. The players will begin reporting on Nov. 8 to Cardiff ahead of the USA’s first friendly of the trip against Wales on Nov. 12 in Swansea.

Four days later, the USMNT will face Panama at Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, in the second match of the November FIFA window. Both matches will kick off at 2:45 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on FS1, UniMás and TUDN.

Berhalter again called upon a young and talented group, with the roster’s average age at 21 years, 300 days.

Nine of the players are part of clubs participating in the UEFA Champions League, the most in team history. Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), Sergino Dest (Barcelona), Weston McKennie (Juventus), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea) and Zack Steffen (Manchester City) will be in the squad for the first time since 2019, along with veterans center backs John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Matt Miazga (Anderlecht) and Tim Ream (Fulham). The last two defenders mentioned are former Red Bulls, as is Adams.

“We are excited about getting this group back together,” Berhalter said in a statement. “I’m proud of the way the players have handled the challenging times – they really stuck together. We have built a solid foundation, and now we get a chance to continue our work together ahead of what is going to be a critical 12 months for our team.”

Ten players are seeking their first cap with the senior national side.

Chris Richards, a defender for reigning UEFA Champions League and Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich, also earned his first senior team call-up.

With the MLS season still underway and playoffs on the horizon, the roster is exclusively made up of players playing professionally outside the United States.
