The youngster has impressed in the Bundesliga and ought to make the step up into the national team shortly, says his compatriot.
Borussia Dortmund’s Giovanni Reyna is at least as gifted as Christian Pulisic and makes everything seem simple, based on Tyler Adams.
Adams has played Pulisic, who represented Dortmund before a summer move to Chelsea, for USMNT, which Reyna was expected to join prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
He has kept a close eye on the kid as both make their way into Germany, together with the 17-year-old Reyna including in the previous 11 Dortmund matches.
“He is a player that for me, you’ve got players such as Christian, you’ve got players such as Weston [McKennie] and then you’ve got players such as Gio who make everything seem easy.
“These are the players that you enjoy playing because you may give them the ball in tough spots, you know he is going to make things happen.
“He just goes about his business, he is not bothered by anything.”
Reyna’s performances in Germany led to USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter stating he’d call him up to the complete squad, despite his final national team match coming at Under-17 level.
The friendlies which were due to happen have been postponed, but some criticised Berhalter’s strategy, saying it was too early for Reyna to make the step up.
“It’s crazy to me [that people question Reyna linking the national team] because, in my mind, it is not based off old, it can not be based off old, it is based from getting your very best players to the pool as fast as possible, getting them experience,” Adams added.
“It is only going to make him better, it is only going to give him more adventures playing at that sort of level.
“The child is making it appear seamless getting the ball in tight spaces against PSG, I am convinced he’s going to have the ability to be given a ball from one of our players from a leading national team.”
