The 1991 FIFA World Youth Championship was the sixth staging of the FIFA World Youth Championship, an international football competition organized by FIFA for men's youth national teams, and the eighth since it was established in 1977 as the FIFA World Youth Tournament. The final tournament took place for the first time in Portugal, between 14 and 30 June 1991. Matches were played across five venues in as many cities: Faro, Braga, Guimarães, Porto and Lisbon.

North Korea and South Korea competed for the first time as a united team, although FIFA attributes its historical data to South Korea.[1] Portugal entered the competition as the defending champions, after winning the previous tournament. They reached the final, where a record attendance of 127,000 witnessed the hosts defeat Brazil 4–2 on penalties to secure their second consecutive title.

Qualification[edit]

In addition to the host team, Portugal, 15 other national teams qualified from six continental tournaments. Among them, Sweden and Trinidad and Tobago secured their first-ever participation at the FIFA World Youth Championship.
