In the first of a triple-header that will also include games against Singapore and Laos, the Azkals dominated proceedings at the National Olympic Stadium but just lacked the finishing touch in front of goal.
Philippines created the first chance eight minutes in when Paul Mulders whipped in a cross from the right that was fired wide by Phil Younghusband from eight yards out, but the Cambodians looked dangerous on the counter and both Rob Gier and Carli De Murga had to be alert to deny the opposition shooting opportunities.
Halftime substitute Patrick Reichelt showed glimpses of quality in the second period, whipping in a cross that was just beyond the reach of Emelio Caligdong, before firing a shot straight at Su Yati after cleverly creating space for himself.
Ex-Fortuna Dusseldorf forward Denis Wolf, who was brought on by coach Michael Weiss five minutes after the hour mark, then wasted a good chance in the 73rd minute when he fired into the side-netting after exchanging a one-two with Paul Mulders.
Reichelt had one final chance to grab a winner for the Azkals late on when he was picked out by Misagh Bahadoran and skipped past three defenders, but having beaten the Cambodia custodian with his well-placed effort, he could only watch on as it came back off the post, capping off a frustrating day for the Azkals.
