Joachim Loew wants Germany to win their last Group B game with Denmark and ensure the team remain in Gdansk.
Germany may have six points from two wins, but are as yet not safe.
"The door to the quarter-finals is now wide open," said Germany coach Joachim Loew, whose team has their Euro 2012 base in Gdansk, Poland, where the winners of Group B will play their quarter-final.
"We wanted to take the next step today and it was important to win the second game.
"It is important to win the group to stay in Gdansk, which would be an advantage in the quarter-finals.
"Holland created a few chances, which our defence dealt with, but I had the feeling Holland were physically dead after 60 minutes."
