I was crying. Jake was in shock. My son is autistic and dyspraxic. That’s why he couldn’t digest what happened until he got home. He was very upset about what happened and decided not to go to the game anymore. It was the first and last game he went to. We had a great day until just seconds before Ronaldo came off, but he ruined it with his shot. Although he didn’t play for Everton, he was a football player he admired and idolized. I would understand if Jake had the phone in front of him, but he didn’t. My son was molested by an autistic boy and a football player. That’s how I see him as a mother.
