Micky Mellon is enjoying watching the World Cup and is now looking forward to tuning in to England's vital second group game against Uruguay tonight.
 
The Shrewsbury Town manager was impressed with England's performance as they lost their opening game 2-1 to Italy in Brazil last weekend.
 
Now the Scot is waiting to see what Roy Hodgson's side can produce against Uruguay.
 
Micky said: "I thought they played really well against Italy. The two teams were evenly matched and it could have gone either way. The margins at that level are so thin.
 
"It was a really encouraging performance by England. They've started to get players like Welbeck, Sturridge and Sterling who can really cause some damage with the pace and the power and the unpredictability, their individual ability. 
 
"It's important to have that any any level.
 
"They've got a tough game against Uruguay but it will be a good game, an exciting game.
 
"I don't know if they need to win it but they certainly can't lose it. They'll be going out there to make sure that first of all they try and get the victory. I would imagine part of the plan is making sure they don't lose. It will be interesting to watch." 
 
Micky is watching lots of the games on TV but admits he's struggling to make all of the 11pm kick offs.    
 
"The only thing I'm finding difficult is the times that the games are on," he said. "You get to 11pm and you're thinking 'I've got work in the morning' so I find that difficult.
 
"It will all really start to heat up now you get into the second round of games and England have got a massive one coming up tonight and that's on at a sensible time for us.
 
"It starts to really get going now because the games really mean something and people can see the pathways and what they need to do so it should be very interesting."
