The new champion of the recent Asian Cup, the Qatar National Team, will play the CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019, as a guest, and it will be their debut in the South American tournament.

In this way, the Qatari team will become the ninth selection outside of CONMEBOL to contest this event (Mexico, Costa Rica, United States, Honduras, Panama, Japan, Jamaica and Haiti are the other eight) and will also be the second Asian team in the Copa America (Japan already did it in 1999 and will also be present in 2019).
