PERSONAL

Gall has three siblings (two brothers, one sister), all of whom are older. Growing up, he was a fan of Barclays Premier League club Arsenal, but Ronaldinho was his favorite player. He started playing soccer on an official team in Virginia at age seven when he and his family moved to the United States from France. He holds dual nationality between the two countries. He then moved back to France in 2011 to live on his own while playing for Lorient. He lists the movie "Hitch" with Will Smith and Kevin James as his favorite, and his favorite musical artists are Chris Brown and Drake. If Gall weren't a soccer player, he would like to try his hand at acting.

Pronunciation: Ro-men, GALL (like Ball)
