1998-99 - UEFA Champions League - First Qualifying Round
FK Dinamo Tbilisi v KS Vllaznia Shkoder
The match was won by FK Dinamo Tbilisi 1-0 but later awarded as a 3-0 forfeit as KS Vllaznia Shkoder had fielded an ineligible player.
I understand the ineligible player may have been one of the substitutes used by KS Vllaznia Shkoder, who had not been named on the official team sheet. Does anybody the name of the player in question?

"World Soccer" (Sept 1998 edn) says that the sanction was "because they had fielded a substitute who was not on the list of players handed to the referee before the start."
Amusingly, it also says that Kevin Davies will be a star of the 2002 World Cup...

"Sport Ekspress" (Russian) said that the offending player was #14, but does not give a name.

UEFA.com data says #14 was Lijan Jahja. So if both sources are correct, that's the answer, but who knows.
