'God is in control': Shauna Magunda, right, Fabrice Muamba's fiancee, urged her Twitter followers to keep the Bolton player in their prayers as he fights for life
Fabrice Muamba's father has told how the bewildered footballer asked 'did we lose?' when he came round in his hospital bed. After being told the match against Tottenham Hotspur had to be abandoned with the scores at 1-1, the Bolton Wanderers star then demanded to know why, and was told by father Marcel: 'Because of you'.
Muamba, whose very first words were about three-year-old son Joshua, is recovering well in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during Saturday's game and his family said they are looking forward to taking him home.

The player is still in intensive care at the London Chest Hospital but has amazed his manager with the speed of his recovery.
Cardiologists said the long-term outlook will remain unclear for some time.
The footballer had a 'comfortable night' in intensive care last night as he continues to recover after being visited by a host of professional players.
