PERSONAL

Gall has three siblings (two brothers, one sister), all of whom are older. Ronaldinho was his favorite player growing up. 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 Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" as his favorite TV show, and his favorite music is rap and hip-hop. If Gall weren't a soccer player, he would like to try his hand at acting or becoming a fashion designer.
