Poruka je došla do onih kojima je bila namijenjena – kako turistima tako i stranim medijamima, u prvom redu njemački i austrijski mediji, da prošire glas o Lijepoj našoj kao sigurnoj turistikoj destinaciji. Croatian tourism professionals: Holidays in Croatia are safe http://www.finanztreff.de/news/kroatien-wirbt-um-touristen-urlaub-im-land-ist-sicher/20938174 The timely communication of the Ministry of Tourism, and especially the CNTB, was lacking and what little we could expect from the season was called into question, UGP points out, adding that this was the motive for the UGP Tourism and Catering Committee to form a press release in which they stressed that tourism workers adhere to all safety recommendations and that Croatia is safe for vacation. https://www.ad-hoc-news.de/wirtschaft/krk-fazana-das-eu-und-adria-land-kroatien-wirbt-im-schatten-der/60300640 https://ch.marketscreener.com/boerse-nachrichten/Kroatien-wirbt-um-Touristen-Urlaub-im-Land-ist-sicher–30859445 The importance of this UGP statement was recognized and published by many media in Germany and Austria, but also beyond.

Coppell returns to Jamshedpur as ATK face stern test

first_imgCoppell returns to Jamshedpur as ATK face stern testJamshedpur: Jamshedpur FC will look to turn around their fortunes at home in the Indian Super League (ISL) when they host a refreshed ATK, managed by former gaffer Steve Coppell here on Sunday.Under Coppell, Jamshedpur FC have managed a mere three wins at home from nine matches last season and just missed out on a play-off spot.“It’s great to be back. I am very proud of what we did last year, even though we did not make the play-offs. It was a great achievement for a new franchise and I look forward to the game tomorrow,” Coppell said. Also Read – Meghalayan mid-fielder Phrangki Buam joins ISL side FC Goa Current boss Cesar Ferrando’s team has impressed in their first two matches of the season, both away from home. They defeated Mumbai City 2-0 and then followed it up with an exciting 2-2 stalemate against Bengaluru FC.“ATK are a good a team. Their team has improved from the first match and they have a good coach. The ATK game, for me, is the most important match of the season. We will try our best. We need to play like a team and I am sure we can win tomorrow,” Ferrando stated.

I hope in front of him, we play well,” he added.Jamshedpur’s new signings and additions have all clicked so far. Mario Arques already looks to be one of the signings of the season while the familiar face of Memo has offered him unconditional support in midfield. Sergio Cidoncha and Pablo Morgado have hit the ground running as well.

They also have the most number of debutants (4) this season to score a goal as well.Coppell, meanwhile, has got off to a difficult start as has been the case with his teams in the previous seasons as well. ATK succumbed to defeats in their first two games but the Kolkata-based club struck back with a 2-1 win against Delhi Dynamos.

The win against Delhi Dynamos, however, helped their forwards regain confidence.Balwant Singh and Noussair El Maimouni got on the scoresheet for ATK in their last outing and Manuel Lanzarote looked to be back to his best. Kalu Uche was also instrumental in linking up attacks up front.“Although it has just been two games, they (Jamshedpur) have made a solid start. We will be looking to press forward as well. It is a good challenge for us. We will look to pick up points,” stated Coppell.Tim Cahill’s presence up front and his impending battle against seasoned campaigner John Johnson makes for interesting viewing. Add Sergio Cidoncha to the mix and the ATK defence will have their task cut out.ATK showed that they are not all about defensive football. Their usage of space during quick counter-attacks will be lethal against Ferrando’s men who will be expected to dominate the proceedings at their home ground. IANSlast_img read more
