Morocco test for Rudy

13 November 2014

Rudy Gestede kicks off Rovers' involvement on the international stage with a game for Benin this Thursday.

The Rovers top scorer has joined up with The Squirrels for their friendly match against Morocco in Agadir.

Benin failed to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals that were due to be held in Morocco next January. However today's opponents have since pulled out of hosting the tournament.

A hamstring injury prevented Gestede from facing Tanzania last month, but since then his club form has been nothing short of sensational as five goals in his last four appearances has helped Rovers to a seven-match unbeaten.

Gestede has two goals from his five caps for Benin.
