England Linked with Shock Call-up for Claudio Reyna’s Teenage Son Giovanni

England Linked with Shock Call-up for Claudio Reyna’s Teenage Son Giovanni

England have been linked with handing a surprise call-up to teenager Giovanni Reyna, the son of former Rangers midfielder Claudio.

Playing at Ibrox during Dick Advocaat’s trophy-laden era, Claudio became a fan favourite amongst the Scottish club’s supporters for his committed and imaginative display in the middle of the park, and went on to win a league title and Scottish Cup during his two-year stint in Glasgow.

After that, Reyna opted for a crack at England with Sunderland and, in 2002, he and his wife had son Giovanni, who had grown-up to be a pretty decent player in his own right.

The 17-year-old was handed his senior debut for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in January and has gone on to play in eight consecutive matches, including Saturday’s 2-0 win over Werder Bremen.

And, according to the Athletic, England are keeping a close eye on the youngster, and could even hand him a cap to fend off competition from the USA, Portugal and Argentina, due to the birthplace of his grandparents.

He’s already followed in the footsteps of his father by representing the US at junior level but if a senior call-up for England came along could he really turn it down?
