However, Microscopist tells us that the mystery ref did the first match in the new Taipei stadium and the opposition was South Korea. This must I think take us to the qualifying rounds and not the finals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1956_AFC_Asian_Cup_qualification). If so,  the match in question was on 2 Sept 1956 between what is now called Taiwan and was then known as the Republic of China. South Korea won on aggregate and -again if Wikipedia is right-they played Hong Kong in the final stages on the 6th.  I'm afraid that as they used to say on Monty Python, my brain hurts.....
