“Christian has had to grow up in an adult soccer world very quickly. He’s 18. He’s not a 30-year-old man understanding all the problems in the world. What he’s experienced from

He’s been embraced by Dortmund, and that has helped all the players get through this week.”

Christian’s mother, Kelley,
was visiting Christian in Germany and was there to support him that evening. (SI.com
