Germany face England in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday evening in what is the first meeting between the pair since the Three Lions dumped Die Mannschaft out of Euro 2020.

Since then Hansi Flick has taken over the 2014 World Cup champions and things have been going well so far.

Saying that, Germany did only pick up a point against Italy last time out in a game they dominated and they will be keen to get back to winning ways in Munich. Here is how they should line up against England.


Germany (4-2-3-1)

Manuel Neuer (GK) - Marc-Andre ter Stegen might have been afforded a start here but as the Barcelona man is being rested this international break, Neuer will continue between the sticks.

Thilo Kehrer (RB) - Started on the left against Italy but the versatile PSG man is likely to be moved to the other side against England.

Niklas Sule (CB) - The colossal defender is on the move this summer with a switch to Borussia Dortmund already being confirmed.

Antonio Rudiger (CB) - Like his centre-back partner Rudiger is also moving on to pastures new. He will line up for Real Madrid during the 2022/23 club season.

David Raum (LB) - Raum played his way into the Germany squad with some excellent displays for Hoffenheim. He managed 13 Bundesliga assists last season from left-back.

Ilkay Gundogan (DM) - The hero for Man City on the last day of the Premier League season should start with Joshua Kimmich - who scored a vital goal himself against Italy - likely to be rested.

Leon Goretzka (DM) - Goretzka came off part way through the Italy game so he should be okay to start again.

Serge Gnabry (RM) - Linked with a move away from Bayern Munich this summer, Gnabry will be hoping to impress his suitors during the international break.

Thomas Muller (AM) - The evergreen number ten continues to play a vital role for Germany, despite Joachim Low's attempts to push him out of the setup.

Marco Reus (LM) - Missed the Italy game through illness but should be fine for an hour or so here.

Kai Havertz (ST) - Clubmate Timo Werner got the nod last time out so it's Havertz's turn to lead the line.
