Remained on the bench throughout the meeting, Monday during the draw between the United States and Wales (1-1), Giovanni Reyna was not injured. Even if, after the meeting, Gregg Berhalter had affirmed not to have used it as a precaution, he clarified his thoughts, this Thursday at a press conference.
“I think I was pretty clear after the game. He was available and it was a coaching decision not to play him, explained the American coach. He will be available for tomorrow’s game (Friday, 8 p.m.) and we’ll see what we decide. »
In competition with Weah
Tipped to start against the Welsh, the Dortmund winger (20 years old, 14 caps) had been replaced on the right side by Timothy Weah, author of the goal for his team. On the strength of this performance, the Lille resident (22 years old, 26 caps) could keep his place in the American eleven, even if it is not excluded that Berhalter will make changes with a view to the third match, against Iran, also important for qualifying for the round of 16.
