Fabrice Muamba Stretchered Off, Tottenham Vs. Bolton Delayed

A scary situation at White Hart Lane has put the match on hold for more important matters as a medical team attends to Bolton's Fabrice Muamba after the player fell to the pitch with an apparent health scare. Referee Howard Webb eventually told the teams to leave the field and the match was put on hold while the possibility of abandoning the match is being considered.

It did not look like there was any impact or collision that caused Muamba to fall to the pitch, but the medical team was quickly out to him and attended to him for nearly 10 minutes before stretchering him off. Announcers speculated that it could be a heart issue or a seizure, but it was nothing more the speculation. All that was clear was that very serious and not just a regular injury, but a real health situation.

Whether or not the match is continued is still unclear, but it is hardly the focus at this moment. Muamba's health is the only real concern and with that in doubt, it is tough to imagine either side wanting to continue the match. All we can do now is hope for the best and send our best wishes Muamba's way.
