Bryan Reynolds becomes second-youngest American to play in Italy’s Serie A
Bryan Reynolds, a 19-year-old with U.S. Youth National Team experience, became the second youngest U.S. player to appear in Italy’s Serie A on Sunday.
Reynolds made his AS Roma with debut during a 2-0 loss to Parma, coming off the bench in the 60th minute as he replaced Bruno Peres at right wingback with his side already trailing by two goals.
The only U.S. player to appear in a Serie A match at a younger age than Reynolds is former U-17 USMNT standout Josh Perez, who played one match for Fiorentina, coming off the bench in a game against with Inter Milan in 2016.
Reynolds, a former FC Dallas Homegrown Player also became the fifth American to play in Serie A, joining another former FC Dallas Academy standout, Weston McKennie of Juventus, in the top tier.
Reynolds joined AS Roma as a loan player with the Serie A side having an obligation to purchase his contract this summer. Roma, which is in fifth place and fighting for a UEFA Champions League berth, had its 17-game unbeaten streak in the league broken.
