Gio Reyna certainly got his Bundesliga season off on the right foot, striking once in Borussia Dortmund’s 5-2 whipping of Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga season opener for both teams Saturday.

With the hosts enjoying a 3-1 advantage, the U.S. men’s national team player scored in the 58th minute.

Erling Haaland, who paced Dortmund with a brace and three assists, and Marco Reus combined on a quick attack into the penalty area. Haaland’s deflected shot fell to Reyna, who put the slotted thte ball in the net from five yards.

Reyna also helped Borussia as he was part of a scoring sequence of two other goals.

He was replaced by Steffen Tigges in the 87th minute.

“We got the win and that is important. I am incredibly happy,” head coach Marco Rose said. “My team played a good game in front of 25,000 fans. If you are talking about my debut, then of course it was very successful. But it’s more about the fact that we wanted to start the season well and we managed to do that. Things went very well for us today. In the end, it only succeeds through team-work, everyone knows that.

“Erling scored two goals today and set up two goals as well. Then you are allowed to celebrate on your own in front of the South Stand. On Tuesday, we can test ourselves against the strongest team in Germany. That’s when a trophy is on the line. We want to prepare well for that.”
