             [Suen Kam-shun 2pen, Chan Kwong-yiu 2-0; the Philippines
              forfeited the match at half-time, having already walked
              off for 10 minutes after the award of the early penalty,
              having had a player sent off in between the first two
              goals and after more fighting after the second goal; 
              they were eventually persuaded to play the second half 
              (30 minutes) hors concours; scorers in the second half
              Lallana (P), Chan Kwong-yiu (C)]

[*] due to the Philippines forfeiting their match against China at half-time 
    it is doubtful whether they should be ranked at all; in any case, only
    the winners of an event were awarded medals

NB: all China players were from South China AA; they had been part of a
    squad touring Australia before the Games, which had also included
    players from Shanghai club side Loh Hwa; however, the latter players
    had been excluded from the Games because of contravening amateur
    rules; likewise the Philippines had leading players banned because
    of illegal payments.
