The Athletic has a nice article on Gio Reyna (link)


"Immediately after winning the cup, he flew to Italy to meet up with the U.S. Under-15s for the Torneo Della Nazione. He captained the U.S. and recorded four goals and four assists in five games, including their late winner in a 2-1 victory over England in the final.

“He was always a leader on the field in the sense that he was so good, but it didn’t really take off until we had gone over to Europe,” says Van den Bergh. “He was just very, very good. He had definitely stepped it up by that point. I saw glimpses of the player he could become in Argentina, but it emerged when he was in Europe… All those games, he was impactful and he was important and he carried the team.”

During the Generation Adidas Cup, Scally remembers excitedly talking with Gio about the college scouts who were in attendance, joking about whether he preferred his mother’s alma mater North Carolina or the University of Virginia, where Claudio starred in the early 1990s. But Gio’s performances in Texas and Italy quickly ended any discussions about college. He was now firmly on the radar of European clubs."
