For the 1967-68 European Cup final UEFA allowed a substitute goalkeeper to be named, presumably to be only used in the event of injury. Neither substitute was called upon.The goalkeepers in question were:
Manchester United FC - Jimmy Rimmer
SL Benfica - Alfredo José Henriques Nascimento.

According to The Celtic Wiki  http://www.thecelticwiki.com/page/Fallon,+John  John Fallon was an unused substitute in the 1966-67 European Cup final (Celtic FC v FC Internazionale). Who was Inter’s named substitute goalkeeper?

From the 1968-69 season UEFA introduced the familiar 2 from 5 substitute rule.

Were substitute goalkeepers named in any earlier European Cup finals prior to 1966-67?

Were substitute goalkeepers named for the 1966-67 and 1967-68 (or earlier) European Cup Winners’ Cup finals?

Ferdinando Miniussi (Inter) and John Fallon (Celtic) were called up for the Lisbon final, as reported by La Stampa from May 23, 1967 and by Linguasport.com.

According to Linguasport.com, there were substitute goalkeepers on the bench in the 1966/67 and in 1967/68 Cup Winners Cup finals.

Admittedly reserve goalkeepers were not allowed before 1964-65. In that season's final Benfica goalkeeper Costa Pereira got injured, leaving his team with 10 men and being replaced in goal by a field player.

That was a terrible final for the famous Portuguese goalkeeper. In the first half he conceded a ridiculous goal to Inter, while in the second half he had to leave the pitch because of injury.
