Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr will not add any new goalkeepers to his squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifying double-header against Cameroon - despite their struggles in that department.

Instead, new goalkeeper trainer Enrico Pionetti will attempt to beat the current crop into some semblance of international shape.
