Germany/Netherlands - Loew wary of wounded Dutch

Germany coach Joachim Loew has said he is wary of Holland in their next match on Wednesday following the Netherlands' shock defeat to Denmark.

World Cup finalists Holland were earlier shocked 1-0 by Denmark, and Loew is wary of Bert van Marwijk's Holland team, who have to beat Germany in Kharkiv, Ukraine, on Wednesday if they are to progress.

"I would have preferred it if they had drawn (against Denmark), a strong Holland team has to win now," said the 52-year-old Loew.

"The Dutch had a huge amount of chances, I am surprised they didn't score a goal, it is all or nothing for them now.

"It will make it all the more difficult, but exciting, for us."
