Gareth Southgate is set to hand England international debuts to Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jordan Pickford against Germany, according to Sky sources.

Swansea striker Abraham is set to start alongside Jamie Vardy in attack for the Three Lions at Wembley on Friday.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will make his international debut in midfield, while Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is also in line to win his first cap for England against the world champions.

Southgate is expected to name a 5-3-2 formation, with Tottenham duo Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose acting as wing-backs and Harry Maguire, John Stones and Phil Jones playing in central defence.

Jake Livermore is set to start in midfield alongside Eric Dier, who will act as captain in the absence of both Harry Kane and Jordan Henderson, who have been ruled out through injury.

Loftus-Cheek will play in behind a front pairing of Jamie Vardy and Abraham, who is set to win his first cap after impressing while on loan at Swansea this season.

Southgate is without a number of first-team regulars for the games against Germany and Brazil, with the likes of Kane, Henderson, Sterling and Alli all unavailable due to injury.
