After a month of media-related setbacks, Wednesday's publication of FIFA's technical reports will reflect positively on the majority of areas in England's bid.
Despite the encouraging news, FIFA has raised concerns in their inspection report over hotels and training facilities and will draw attention to four contractual areas where government guarantees are not currently met.
Overall, FIFA is understood to be satisfied with England's bid and has categorised it as a low risk, along with those of rivals Spain and Portugal, and Russia.
With two weeks of campaigning left, the race to host the 2018 World Cup looks likely to go to the wire.
There was further good news for England as rivals also came in for criticism. FIFA pinpointed Russia's transport system as a cause for concern and, for Spain and Portugal's joint bid, FIFA raised fears over security issues.
West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady, who is head of the 2018 advisory board, is confident the publication of the reports will stand England's bid in good stead.
"Our hope is that the executive committee's vote is based purely around sporting credentials," she said. "If that is the case, we know we have a very strong chance. If it is based solely on that, we should win on December 2."
A little cheering for the english fans since majority of your players are currently injuried ;) ♥
