Safe passage into the knockout rounds has been secured but England can yet make a further statement by beating their rivals.
Carsley could look to rotate given England’s strong position with the only slight fitness concern being Norwich City defender Max Aarons.
He missed the win over Israel through illness and is the only player heading into the game with an element of doubt.
Emile Smith Rowe and Anthony Gordon have been operating in a fluid frontline for the tournament so far but Aston Villa’s Cameron Archer could play as a recognised central option.
England U21 vs Germany predicted lineup: Rushworth; Aarons, Harwood-Bellis, Branthwaite, Thomas; Skipp, Ramsey, Elliott, Palmer, Smith-Rowe, Archer
