According to the press release, she's been selected to help her national team's defense for some international friendlies taking place in Europe this month. The first matchup Tide fans should keep an eye on is just over a week away as Mexico faces off against Slovakia on Saturday, April 10 at 7:00 AM CST in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The second and final match in April for Reyes will be against a tough Spain team on Tuesday, April 13 at noon CST in Marbella, Spain.

Reyes has built a rapport with the club through multiple camps for their senior "mayor" team and started participating with the U17 team at the 2016 World Cup as an eighth-grader in her hometown of Dallas, Texas.

Though she missed the first two games of the 2021 Alabama Soccer season due to a national team camp, she didn't wait to make an impact once she returned. She scored the game-winning goal for the Tide against Montevallo and three days later would do the same, on the road, against Lipscomb. Alabama Soccer is 5-2 in 2021, a large improvement since Reyes' freshman year, and has two more games left for the campaign.

It is still unclear whether or not the Texas native will dress for the Tide this Saturday as they take on the Clemson Tigers on the road at 11:00 AM CST.
