The 1995 Copa América football tournament was staged in Uruguay. It was won by Uruguay, who beat Brazil 5-3 in the penalty shootout after tying them 1-1 in the final. All 10 CONMEBOL members took part, with Mexico and the USA were invited in order to reach 12 teams.

The USA were the surprise of the tournament, beating defending champion Argentina 3-0 and winning its group. The USA went on to defeat Mexico on penalty kicks in the second round but then lost to Brazil 1-0 in the semifinals. They then fell to Colombia 4-1 in the third place game, finishing fourth overall.

In this edition of the tournament, extra time was never played if a match was drawn after 90 mins. Instead it went straight to a penalty shootout.
