Spain feasts on 500 melons from home at Euro

A Spanish fruit company hopes its delicious melons will help

energize Spain’s European Championship bid following its opening

draw against Italy.

A truck filled with the fruit was delivered to the World Cup

champions’ training base in northern Poland, with the team having

already enjoyed the ”frog-skinned” melons for breakfast Tuesday

morning. Frog skin refers to the color of the fruit.

Spanish sports daily AS organized the 3,000-kilometer

(1,865-mile) delivery from El Monarca, which is based in Murcia,


Spain’s bid to become the first team to win three straight major

titles continues Thursday against Group C rival Ireland.
