The tournament hosts are already qualified, giving manager Hansi Flick plenty of time to work with a younger squad and figure out how to avoid a third consecutive capitulation on the international stage when 2024 arrives.
Here's how the boss could set up.
GK: Marc-Andre ter Stegen - With Manuel Neuer still injured, Ter Stegen will get another chance to prove he should be the starter.
RB: Marius Wolf - Dortmund defender Wolf looks set for his maiden appearance for Die Mannschaft.
CB: Matthias Ginter - Flick has opted against calling up Antonio Rudiger or Niklas Sule, giving Ginter the chance to establish himself as a veteran in this squad.
CB: Nico Schlotterbeck - Schlotterbeck has a bright future in this squad and will now begin his promotion to permanent starter.
LB: David Raum - Raum is the best Germany have to offer at left-back and could easily keep that title for the next five years.
DM: Joshua Kimmich - The most experienced member of the squad is now 28-year-old Kimmich, who boasts 74 caps for the national team.
DM: Leon Goretzka - Kimmich's partner in crime, Goretzka will likely share the minutes with Emre Can here.
RM: Serge Gnabry - Expect Gnabry to start the match but Flick will be keen to take a look at Brentford's Kevin Schade at some point.
AM: Kai Havertz - Jamal Musiala is out injured and so Havertz may get the start here, ahead of youngsters Florian Wirtz and Feix Nmecha.
