Stuart Pearce has handed two debuts for tonight's encounter with Germany.
Kieran Trippier, who is currently at Barnsley on loan from Manchester City, and Swansea City's in-form striker Scott Sinclair both start for the first time.
There are also first starts for four other players, Martin Kelly, Jack Cork, Nathan Delfouneso and Henri Lansbury in a young-looking Three Lions side.
Pearce has rested Aston Villa's Marc Albrighton and QPR's Kyle Walker as a precaution.
All five remaining members of the squad are on the bench and should any of them come on, it will also be their debut, too.
Michael Mancienne will captain this side in his 27th appearance, while experience also comes from Scott Loach in goal, the returning Jack Rodwell, and Danny Rose, who will operate in a more central role than usual.
1 Scott Loach, 2 Kieran Trippier, 3 Ryan Bertrand, 4 Jack Rodwell, 5 Martin Kelly, 6 Michael Mancienne, 7 Scott Sinclair, 8 Jack Cork, 9 Nathan Delfouneso, 10 Danny Rose, 11 Henri Lansbury
