Taiwan national team tour of South East Asia 1962

The football tournament of the Asian Games began on 25/08/1962 but Taiwan was excluded.

Notes: Singapore, North Borneo (later known as Sabah) and Sarawak were separate British crown
  colonies at this time. Labuan was part of North Borneo. Brunei was a British protected state.
  The term "All-Singapore" refers to a team selected from all players based in Singapore, including
  (for example) British servicemen. The same team was fielded in the Merdeka Tournament in Malaysia,
  September 1962. On the other hand, the match on 27/7/62 involved the Singapore team preparing for
  the Asian Games, though later the Singapore sports authorities decided not to send a football
  team to the Asian Games. That team was essentially "All-Singapore" minus the servicemen, in
  accordance with the Asian Games rules.
