BREAKING! Africa Cup Of Nations 2021 Moved To This Date

January 16th, 2020 by admin

The tournament was scheduled to take place in June and July but was changed because of the “unfavourable” weather in the country at that time of year.

It means a number of Premier League clubs could be without first-team players at a crucial stage of the season.

The 2019 tournament in Egypt was the first one to be held in the summer.

Before that, the Cup of Nations had been held in January and February, clashing with the European domestic season.

The change back to a January start means that the tournament will not clash with the expanded Club World Cup, being held in China in June 2021.

Following a meeting on Wednesday with representatives from the Confederation of African Football (Caf), including president Ahmad, the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) tweeted: “It [2021 Africa Cup of Nations] will be played in Cameroon from 9 January to 6 February, 2021. Date changed for weather reasons at Cameroon’s request.”

Caf’s deputy general secretary Tony Baffoe said:

“We have reviewed the period of the competition as requested by the Cameroonian party due to unfavourable climatic conditions during the period initially slated.

“After listening to the various arguments and viewpoints – and in particular from the Cameroonian meteorological authorities, the coaches and players – the representatives of the Afcon organising committee, which received the mandate from Caf Executive Committee to take the decision, has granted this request.

“A detailed reported shall be presented to the members of the Executive Committee during its next session on 6 February.”

Rashford Gamble ‘Backfired’ Ahead Of Liverpool Clash : Solskjaer

January 16th, 2020 by admin

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that the gamble in bringing on Marcus Rashford against Wolves “backfired”.

Rashford lasted just 15 minutes as United won 1-0, after a clash with Wolves defender Matt Doherty.

The England striker is now a doubt for the trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on Sunday.

“It backfired. You have got to take them [risks] once in a while.

“He’ll be tested in the next few days – we have to see for Sunday.

“He couldn’t run. He struggled a little bit with his back and got another knock. It didn’t help,” Solskjaer told the media after the game.

United will face either Watford or Tranmere in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Best Tips For Choosing The Most Suitable Health Insurance

August 14th, 2019 by admin

Did you know that the medical costs for a broken bone or infection range between $5000-$15000? International hospitals abroad are generally really expensive but are the only facilities that offer medical care at a similar level as your home country. You can never predict an accident and it’s not very likely to happen, but what if it does?

Something like that could change your life forever regardless of who’s fault is was or how it happened, that’s out of your hands. However, being properly insured with a good international health care insurance against such incidents is completely under own control.

There are many pros and cons and other things to consider when getting a proper health insurance. Therefore, we’ve created a list that will help you select the best insurance for a decent price.

Stay with me here and let’s get started.

How To Choose The Most Suitable Insurance Plan

When you cut the cord and decided to move abroad, one of the first things you want to do is research international health insurance policies. Going through policies can be a draining task but it’s important to determine what is covered, and what’s not. You’re not the one choosing to be in an accident or become sick but you’re the one choosing whether the costs for the treatment are covered or not. I don’t think you prefer to pay any medical bills out of your own pocket.

What’s next?

As you can imagine, there’s a huge number of large established international health insurance companies out there. So, how do you find the most suitable plan tailored to your personal needs?

We’ve created a list that will help you to dial down the number of possible insurance plans to a maximum of 2 or 3:

Age
It’s not uncommon for insurance providers to have different policies for older people. When you’re ~65 years of age, you might not be covered under the same plan as youngsters.
Pre-existing conditions
Depends on the conditions but it might not be covered
Where are you located
Most policies present different plans/prices for different regions or countries in the world.
Individual or family plan
There are different plans for individuals and families, take this into account.
Nationality
Insurance providers make a difference between different nationalities.

Let’s dig a little deeper…
What Are Important Features?

When talking about features, we’re not only talking about the specific coverage of insurance plans but also the customer-friendly, user-experience, and other features that are important.

Here’s what you need to look for:

Price

Obviously, you want to get the best deal for an insurance policy that covers all your needs.

Online Access

A simple user-interface with all the important features shown in the main dashboard, one-click options to get in touch for consulting, service desk and claims.

Area of coverage

When you buy an ‘international health insurance plan’, you want it to be truly ‘international’. Don’t let a policy limit your freedom of traveling or visiting certain regions around you. Make sure to check on such specifics.

Flexibility

Determine whether it’s possible to easily down or upgrade your insurance plan. I’d suggest looking for a provider that allows easy online access to change or adjust your policy to meet your personal needs.

Extent of medical coverage

You’d be flabbergasted to see the incredibly fast growing costs of medical bills in hospitals, especially when you’ll have to stay in a hospital a couple of nights.

This is especially important when you’re living in a country where medical attention is typically expensive, as for example in the USA, Europe or Australia. Pay attention to the maximum plan limit usually on a yearly basis.

Customer Support

Regardless of your location, time zone, or language, you should always be able to contact customer support. Whether you have urgent matters to discuss or simply a question – great 24/7 customer support is a must!

Repatriation

When a medical facility in your location is unable to provide necessary medical treatment, normal procedure would be to medically evacuate you, in other words, repatriation. Not all insurance providers cover repatriation.

We’re almost done here.

Just have a quick look at the final tips that could influence your decision-making.
Some Final Food For Thought

We’ve covered all main insurance features above. Before making your decision final on what insurance plan suits you best, take a look at some extra tips.

Keep the following in mind, regardless the policy you buy:

Deductibles:

There isn’t a single insurance policy that refunds 100% of any medical costs. The fact is, you’ll always have to pay $100-$200 yourself.

Read carefully:

As mentioned before, it takes a lot of time and effort to read all the small letters in the policy but it’s better to do so instead of being surprised later on. If you’re not sure about the policy rules, just call them.

Be honest:

Don’t lie about certain conditions or personal details when asked about during the registration process. Sooner or later it will come to light. In worst case scenario, you could face fraud accusations or other claims. Just don’t.

Liability:

When you end up in the hospital due to an accident and, for example, you were intoxicated, chances are the insurance provider won’t cover any of the expenses.

That’s it.

Whatever you do and wherever you go, always make sure to stay safe and healthy. You might feel invisible sometimes or feel like nothing will happen to you.

Don’t take any risks.

It’s just a small investment and it might save you
