Buoyed by their win in the World Cup this summer, Spain are set to push for co-hosting the 2018 tournament with neighbouring Portugal, Secretary of State for Sports Jaime Lissavetsky said Tuesday.

"Spain's next challenge is to organise the 2018 World Cup," Lissavetsky said in an address to the Spanish Football Federation's (RFEF) general assembly meeting.

Spain and Portugal hope to pool their resources as Japan and South Korea did in 2002 for 2018 after Brazil hosts the next edition in 2014. FIFA's inspection commitee visited hopefuls Japan early this week.
