22- 5-1925 Philippines 1-5 China [N.N. 45pen; Lee Wai Tong 10, 25, 51, Pang Hua Hing 15, Suen Kam Shun 61; half-time: 0-3] [Philippines: Mariano Sangle; Luis Pradera, Miguel Diaz; Jesus Cui, Ernesto Hernaez, Florentino Reyes; Alberto Villareal, Joaquin Lopez, Rafael Cartagena, Sebastian Ugarte, Ildefonso Tronqued; China: Lau Hing-Cheung; Lai Yuk-Tat, Chan So; Leung Yu Tong (c), Wong Shui Wah, Lam Yuk Yin; Pang Kam Wing, Suen Kam Shun, Pang Hua Hing, Lee Wai Tong, Chan Kwong-Yu; ref: F. Alcantara (Philippines)]A crowd of 30,000 witnessed this deciding game, China was without injured centre-forward Wong Pak-Chung who was replaced by Pang Hua Hing. Some Philippines fans in the stadium held up a card saying 'beware China's inside-left (Lee Wai Tong)'. Good advice, but not adhered to; the 20-year-old scored a hattrick and set up Pang Hua Hing's goal. The Philippines goal came from a penalty 10 minutes into the second-half. Another reason offered up was that the Bohemian club, the Champions of the Philippines, disagreed with the inclusion of players from other clubs and prefered not to pass to them, This prompted Lee Wai Tong to say 'Philippines have better individual players than China, but we are a better team'. This was Philippines legend Joaquin Lopez' last tournament having played in all previous occasions
