It was later revealed that they have been an issue from the Football Federation of Cambodia. In an official letter sent by the AFC to the FFC (Football Federation of Cambodia), the AFC complained that the Cambodia flag produced did not match the required criteria. As a result, the previous Cambodian flag that was used for the last two years in AFC tournaments was used. This was the reason for the effective delay of the game.
