Congolese/British Footballer Fabrice Muamba collapses on the field during FA Cup Quarter Final Match

23 Year Old Bolton Midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed during an FA Cup Quarter Final Match between his club and Tottenham Hotspur.

The young footballer star who moved from his home country the Democratic Republic of Congo to the UK when he was 11 years old collapsed during the first half of the match “with no other players around him”. The match was suspended as medical personnel worked hard to help revive him.

There is speculation that he suffered a heart attack and is currently receiving medical attention in a specialist medical centre.

We are wishing him well and hope that he recovers soon.

Fabrice Muamba proposed to his girlfriend a few weeks ago on Valentine’s Day and has a young son named Joshua.

      At least he’s breathing now and its some good news to thank God for. He is currently in stable condition after medical staff managed to restore his breathing.

    I think the worst is over and he will pull through, even though they said he’s in a critical condition. Fab response from football teams today and the rounds of applause at games for him. Everyone’s’ prayers will help him.

    From his story, he proved that something good can come out of nothing. From an asylum seeker to a paid footballer, life gives you what you demand out of it.
    He has resilience, he would pull through.

    You are a miracle! Get well soon.Peace.
