Reuters: Reyna Retires from National Team

Reuters news service is reporting that US Captain Claudio Reyna will retire from the Men's National Team. I certainly expect the USSF to give him a send off game in the next few months. Reyna made some mistakes in this World Cup and has been injury prone. He also has been less vocal as a captain than I would have liked. Nonetheless his skill level and on the ball ability is unrivaled in recent history of US Soccer.

Will he still play for Man City?

His first memory will be being the John O'Brien of World Cup 1994 and taking a roster spot and not playing due to injury.

His final memory will be being stripped of the ball directly leading to a goal to eliminate USA from World Cup 2006 and leaving with an injury.

Farewell, Claudio. Drive safely.

A sad happening. Reyna is one of our greatest ever.

How can you say that????? Don't you remember the 45 quality minutes of inspired soccer O'Brien gave us versus the Czechs? Oh yeah, that was Eddie Johnson. :)

O'Brien wasn't fit and it showed! Why the heck did Arena include O'Brien on the 23 man roster?

Nice job Claudio, you were personally responsible for two opponents goals in this world cup, two more than you have scored in your illustrious world cup career spanning four world cups! See ya later.
