Thailand reprimand for disruption of AFF Cup Final

The ASEAN Football Federation, the administrative body for South East Asian football, has decided not to take any action against Thailand for its protest walkout during the first leg of the ASEAN Football Federation Championship Final in Singapore. According to AFCMedia, the AFF reprimanded the Thai team and issued them a warning to refrain from such behaviour in the future. The Thais "were irked" by referee M Ravichandran’s decision to award a penalty to hosts Singapore and walked off the field. The match was delayed for 15 minutes before AFF officials persuaded the Thai team to return and resume action. Thailand lost that leg 2-1 and in the return leg a 1-1 draw ensured that Singapore retained the title.
