Reyna is an experienced midfield player who has captained the USA team and is regarded as the country's most talented player.

He made his name in college soccer at the University of Virginia before moving to Germany where he spent several seasons with Bayer Leverkusen and then Wolfsburg.

He subsequently moved on to Rangers where he was a regular in the team that won two Scottish League titles.

However, he found it increasingly difficult to hold down a place in the starting line-up and, in December 2001, he moved on to Sunderland in search of regular first-team action for a record fee paid for an American of £4.5 million.

A veteran of the Olympic and World Cup finals (injury stopped him playing in the 1994 World Cup Finals), he won his first cap against Norway in January 1994.

He can control the game from the central area.

A leading figure in the USA's success at the 2002 World Cup finals, Reyna was selected for FIFA's All-Star squad.

Reyna joined Manchester City in August 2003 in a three-year deal. His contract was extended to June 2007 in January 2006.
