Awful news today out of Germany, where TSG Hoffenheim midfielder Boris Vukcevic is fighting for his life following a serious traffic accident on Friday.

It certainly hits close for two young U.S. internationals: Fabian Johnson and Danny Williams are Hoffenheim teammates at the Bundesliga club.

Hoffenheim is in the middle of the Bundesliga table after five rounds. The club is scheduled to meet FC Augsburg at home tomorrow at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Hoffenheim general manager and former German international Andreas Mueller said his team is “shaken,” but there is no word as yet on whether his club will postpone tomorrow’s contest.
