On the national level he played for Germany national team (20 matches/1 goal), and was a participant at the 1938 FIFA World Cup. He was the inside right of the Breslau Eleven that beat Denmark 8-0 in Breslau in 1937 and went on to win 10 out 11 games played during that year.
One of the many talents emanating from FC Schalke 04 during the 1930s, young Rudolf Gellesch replaced Fritz Szepan as inside forward after Szepan had moved to the center half position. Being a talented threader of moves on the pitch, he appeared to be a double of Szepan.
