Rohr : I will not invite new goalkeeper

From all indication, It seems that Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is sticking to his current custodians ahead of the all important crackers in September against African Champions Indomitable lions of Cameroon.
The Super Eagles fans are concerned about the goalkeeping department due to the 0-2 home defeat to Bafana Bafana of South Africa in June by which current first choice Daniel Akpeyi didn't cover himself in glory.
Wolverhampton Wanderers Carl Ikeme has been ruled out after an unfortunate leukemia diagnosis and FC Ifeanyi Ubah's Ikechuwku Ezenwa has not enjoyed the trust of Rohr, but the German tells KweséESPN that he will not be calling up any fresh faces.

"There is no new goalkeeper coming in for the moment," Rohr says. "We have the help of goalkeeper coach Enrico Pionetti [so] we will work hard on that." Enrico Pionetti 62 is the new goalkeeper trainer, was born in Parma and spent his entire playing career in Italy, mostly with his longest and most productive senior stint at Lecce. He worked as goalkeeper trainer with Rohr at French club OGC Nice, and then again when he managed Burkina Faso.
