The match was abandoned after China made its fourth goal through a penalty kick, after which a fighting brawled after the Philippine goalkeeper punched the Chinese scorer. This led to the Philippines' withdrawal. The Philippines was ranked second overall but due to the team's withdrawal in their match against China it is uncertain if they were ranked second at all.
