England XI vs Germany: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest Nations League injuries

An experimental Three Lions side suffered a tasteless 1-0 defeat in Hungary in the two countries’ A League Group 3 opener.

Gareth Southgate will make some changes and hopes a trip to Munich will bring more to his squad. A switch could see Bukayo Saka replace James Justin at left-back, starting him a doubt after being taken off at half-time with a calf injury.

Phil Foden is out with Covid but his Manchester City team-mates Raheem Sterling have recovered from illness and are expected to come in. He could be joined by fellow City striker Jack Grealish to form a top three with captain Harry Kane.

Jude Bellingham will be keen to start in Germany after enjoying so much success with Borussia Dortmund. He could replace Kelvin Phillips to partner Declan Rice.

Kieran Trippier will be on the starting line after missing Hungary and Southgate may prefer the Newcastle man’s better defensive abilities to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Predicted England XI: Pickford; Stones, Coady, Maguire; Trippier, Rice, Bellingham, Saka; Sterling, Kane, Greish

Where: Allianz Arena, Munich

When: Tuesday, June 7, 7:45 p.m. BST
