Marc Guehi is on the bench after recovering from an ankle injury at the end of the club’s season with Crystal Palace and not being fit for Saturday’s opening defeat against Hungary, while Sterling was an unused substitute in this game after being a doubt through illness.
James Justin and Fikayo Tomori do not face the Germans in Munich. Justin was sent off at half-time on his international debut against Hungary while Tomori, like Guehi, arrived at camp with an existing injury problem after a superb season helping AC Milan win Serie A.
“James won’t be ready for tomorrow but hopefully he can be back if not for the next game then the one after that,” Gareth Southgate said ahead of the game.

“Marc, from what we have assessed, should be available for tomorrow, but I think [with] Fik we could give a little longer. He’s progressed very well, we could probably put him in the squad, but considering it was a hamstring injury, we’ll give him a bit more time. Raheem is fine, yes.
Elsewhere, Phil Foden remains absent, having not traveled to Germany after testing positive for Covid last week.
John Stones starts at centre-back after coming on as a substitute against Hungary, while Kieran Trippier replaces Justin. Bukayo Saka arrives and could play as a left-back or in a 4-2-3-1.
Kalvin Phillips enters midfield with Mason Mount and Sterling joining Harry Kane in attack. Jack Grealish is content with a place on the bench.
