Gio Reyna tunes out the noise after scoring winning goal

Gio Reyna has probably never scored a more cathartic goal in his life.

Amid a period of near-constant turmoil around Reyna, his parents and his national team coach, the Borussia Dortmund star reminded everyone what he can do on a soccer field on Sunday.

Reyna scored a ridiculous late winner in his team’s first game back after the World Cup, giving Dortmund a dramatic 4-3 win over Augsburg at Signal Iduna Park.

After coming on as a 70th minute sub, Reyna took just eight minutes to put his stamp on the match.

Jude Bellingham flicked on a long cross-field ball for Reyna, who took one touch to control at the edge of the box and then unleashed an unstoppable half-volley that flew into the far corner.

The 20-year-old’s celebration was fitting, as he put his fingers in his ears to demonstrate he is doing his best to block out all of the noise around him.

With so much drama around Reyna, Sunday was a reminder that there wouldn’t be this much of a fuss if he wasn’t such a special talent.
