The 1995 King Fahd Cup (Arabic: كأس الملك فهد‎‎) was the second and last tournament held under the King Fahd Cup name before the competition was sanctioned by FIFA and renamed the FIFA Confederations Cup. It was hosted by Saudi Arabia in January 1995. It was won by Denmark, who beat defending champions Argentina 2–0 in the final.



All matches were played at the 67,000-capacity King Fahd II Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


With three goals, Luis García is the top scorer in the tournament. In total, 19 goals were scored by 14 different players, with none of them credited as own goal.
