Alex Bonsor, a forward, played the first 15 minutes in goal for England against Scotland on 6 March 1875, until WH Carr's arrival.  He kept a clean sheet.
Jack Ball, an inside left, went in goal at halftime for England, in the match against Ireland on 22 October 1927, Ted Hufton injured his wrist and could not play the second half.  Both Ball and Hufton conceded one goal each.
Both are essentially outfield players simply covering lateness, or injury, and are therefore not included in this list.
