The good news was on Tuesday afternoon: From the Dortmund national players there are no information on new injuries – that was different in the past. Thus, from a turnout period, early October Manuel Akanji, Raphael Guerreiro and Thorgan Hazard all came back.
Still are for a total of eleven travelers, next to Hazard (Belgium), Guerreiro (Portugal) and Akanji (Switzerland) are in this break Julian Brandt (Germany), Jude Bellingham (England), Marin Pongracic (Croatia), Donyell Paint (Netherlands), Gregor Kobel (Switzerland), Erling Haaland (Norway), Luca Excomusive (Germany U 20) and Giovanni Reyna (USA) but to complete games.
Most flight kilometers restores the young American Reyna, who was already in Mexico (0: 0) and against Panama (5: 1), first 30 minutes, then a halftime. The four points brought the team of Headcoach Gregg Concern a good starting position, but certainly the World Cup participation for Qatar is not yet.
Decisive will now become the direct duel with Costa Rica in the night on Thursday German time (3:05, live! At Jude Bellingham). A point there is ranging in view of three counters ahead of the fourth place currently on the fourth place of the final round, which is still qualified for the play-offs against a team from Oceania.
Thus, the hope of BVB managers smashed that Reyna could possibly come home earlier, but the 19-year-old is still needed at the showdown in the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San José. Another trip to Central America, which will put the offensive player in the legs. At his last completion in early September, he had drawn up a tedious muscle injury at the US team and celebrated his comeback a few weeks ago.
It will be tight for Reyna
The plan now is to fly Reyna as quickly as possible after the game to Dortmund, in the optimal case the talent will arrive Thursday night. Item is all the time, no 48 hours later the BVB plays on Saturday against RB Leipzig (18.30, live! At Jude Bellingham).
