    Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba remains in critical condition in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup quarterfinal against Tottenham, his club said Sunday.

    Muamba, 23, collapsed just before half time in Saturday's match in London, with medics attempting resuscitation using a defibrilator before carrying him off to an ambulance.

    With Muamba's condition unknown and the players visibly distressed, the match was abandoned by referee Howard Webb.

    "Fabrice was admitted to the hospital yesterday evening after collapsing at White Hart Lane, where he sustained a cardiac arrest," Bolton said on their website Sunday

    "Muamba remains in a critical condition in intensive care in the Heart Attack Centre at The London Chest Hospital. ... Fabrice received prolonged resuscitation at the ground and on route to The London Chest Hospital, where his heart eventually started working."

    Bolton Wanderers Manager Owen Coyle said: "Fabrice's family have asked me to pass on their thanks for the many, many kind messages of support from not only Bolton fans but also fans from clubs across the country and abroad.

    The Congolese-born Muamba has played for England at every youth level. He joined Wanderers from Birmingham in 2008 and has made 148 appearances for the club.
