The Argentina squad that won the cup

The 1991 Copa América football tournament was hosted by Chile, from July 6 to 21. It was organized by CONMEBOL and all ten member nations participated.

This was the last time that the tournament consisted of only CONMEBOL member nations. In subsequent tournaments, at least two nations from outside CONMEBOL have been invited to bring the total number of participants to twelve.

Argentina won the Copa América for the 13th time, their first since 1959.[2]
