Ángel Eduardo Reyna Martínez (born 19 September 1984 in Mexico City, Mexico)[1] is a Mexican footballer who currently plays as an attacking midfielder for Liga MX club Guadalajara.[2]

Club career

Early career

Even though he came out of Club América's reserves, he was given his professional debut at San Luis F.C. on 31 July 2005. He scored his first goal in the Primera Division against Pumas UNAM on 5 February 2006.

Club América

On 18 December 2008 he signed with Mexico City giants América, where he was "born" as a footballer, to be the new reinforcement for the Clausura 2009 season. His debut was against rivals Chivas Guadalajara in the InterLiga tournament where the match ended in a 1–1 draw.

For the Bicentenario 2010 season, after the shooting of Salvador Cabañas, Reyna became a reference player for the team and one of their top scorers, going on to score 7 goals in 16 appearances, including the 9000th goal in the history of the Estadio Azteca in a 2–2 draw with Pachuca.

On 3 April 2011 Reyna scored his first hat-trick for América in a 5–4 win against Puebla in the Clausura 2011 tournament. On 1 May 2011 after scoring the second goal in the 91' minute in the 2–0 win over home-side Pumas, Reyna scored his 13th league goal, thus becoming goalscoring champion of the Clausura 2011.[3] He made team history by scoring 13 goals making him the second Mexican-born goalscoring champion, the last one being Cuauhtemoc Blanco in 1998, who scored 16 goals.

On 24 October 2011, Reyna was separated from the first team after saying that the team´s captain, Aquivaldo Mosquera, was made of "water" and that América had a defense of "plastic". América was in the 16th position of the league and had one of the worst defenses in the tournament. After that declarations Reyna was separated of the team.[4]

Monterrey, Pachuca and Veracruz

On 21 December 2011, Reyna joined C.F. Monterrey. Reyna scored 4 goals and 3 assist in his first tournament with Monterrey. His team won the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League and was the runner-up for the Mexican Clausura 2012. He showed off on the CONCACAF following tournament by scoring a hat-trick in the 5–0 victory over Chorrillo F.C. in the opening match. On 2013 he went on loan to Pachuca FC, and later was sold to Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz.

Guadalajara

On 29 May 2014 Reyna made a controversial move to Guadalajara for a fee rumored to be around US$6 million.[2]

International career

Mexico national team

In 2010 Reyna was called up by Javier Aguirre to play a series of friendlies with the Mexican national football team against Bolivia, North Korea, and Iceland, were he appeared as a substitute in all three matches.

After being the Clausura 2011 top-goalscorer, he was called up by new national team coach José Manuel de la Torre for a series of friendlies against Ecuador and New Zealand national football team, and for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
