This was replaced by Leonardo Rodríguez , who, along with Claudio Paul Caniggia , Fabián Basualdo , Diego Simeone and an emerging Gabriel Omar Batistuta(in the end, the tournament's top scorer with six annotations), he formed a very solid team, which won the tournament without major complications, resulting in the winner in six of the seven games played (the only match that tied in this tournament was the one that played with Chile in the final home run, under torrential rain at the National Stadium in Santiago de Chile ). The local team also had an outstanding participation, finishing in third place, with a team led by forward Iván Zamorano , author of five annotations.
