South Korea has expressed its intention to jointly bid with North Korea to host the 2023 Women's World Cup, FIFA said on Tuesday.

According to the Korea Football Association, the idea was proposed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino. "Although we haven't talked with North Korea about that yet, we expect some degree of cooperation from FIFA on the matter," said an official at the KFA said.

Eight other countries -- Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa -- have expressed their interest in hosting the tournament.

The host country will be decided in March next year.
