Die Mannschaft lined up with a trio of central defenders in their recent friendlies with Denmark and Latvia - although they still conceded in both games - and that rearguard should comprise Matthias Ginter, Antonio Rudiger and Mats Hummels.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen being ruled out of the tournament means that Manuel Neuer will retain his spot in goal unchallenged, and he could set a new record for the most games played by a goalkeeper at major international tournaments this summer, should Germany make it far enough.
Leroy Sane and Timo Werner both came off the bench to net against Latvia, while Kevin Volland is another option in attack, but Kai Havertz could edge out his compatriots and keep hold of his starting berth.
Germany possible starting lineup: Neuer; Ginter, Hummels, Rudiger; Kimmich, Kroos, Gundogan, Gosens; Havertz, Muller; Gnabry
