The Football Association is being urged to award wartime international Frank Soo an honorary cap after the East Asian trailblazer was appointed to the Stoke-on-Trent Sporting Hall of Fame.

Soo, whose father was Chinese, became the first player of Asian heritage to represent England when he appeared in a wartime international against Wales in 1942. Soo, who was raised in Liverpool and turned out for Prescott Cables as a teenager, played in nine England wartime matches between 1942 and 1945.
