Gio Reyna continued his excellent run of form on the international stage on Sunday evening, and was given the Concacaf Nations League best player award.

The United States won the Concacaf Nations League once again on Sunday, as they beat arch-rivals Mexico in the final. Goals from Tyler Adams and Gio Reyna gave the USMNT the victory and their third consecutive Nations League title.

While he has found minutes hard to come by at the club level this season, Gio Reyna was once again star of the show for his national team on Sunday. The highly rated attacking midfielder played the role of the deep-lying midfielder to great success, and also doubled the USMNT's lead in the second-half with a fine finish. Former RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams had earlier opened the scoring for Gregg Berhalter's side in the 45th minute.

Reyna's performances also saw him win the Concacaf Nations League best player award. The 21 year old scored two goals and assisted a further two in four games in the Finals. He registered two clutch assists in the USMNT's semifinal against Jamaica, before delivering another strong performance in the final against Mexico.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Gio Reyna at the club level. He has found minutes hard to come by on loan at Nottingham Forest. But the hope will be that his performances for the United States will give him the confidence and momentum to make his mark at Borussia Dortmund next season.
