Confederations Cup 1995 – Saudi Arabia

Confederations Cup 1995 – Saudi Arabia

The 2nd edition of the FIFA Confederations Cup was played in Saudi Arabia from the 6th - 13th January 1995. Six teams took part in the tournament, which was staged at only one venue in Saudi Arabia – the King Fahd II Stadium in Riyadh. The teams were split into two groups of three with the winners of each group going into the final and the runners-up contesting the third place play-off. At the time, the tournament was still known as the King Fahd Cup, but it has since been recognised by FIFA and is now treated as the second Confederations Cup.

The qualified teams were: Denmark (Euro 1992 winners), Mexico (CONCACAF Gold Cup 1993 winners), Saudi Arabia (hosts), Argentina (Copa America 1993 winners), Nigeria (African Cup of Nations 1994 winners) and Japan (Asian Cup 1992 winners).
