"It fills me with pride, but this is not just [from] the Netherlands game. I've always said, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, I feel a certain pride, which has made this team." the 52-year-old was quoted as saying by Bild.
"We are the youngest team in the tournament, which automatically means that this team has very good prospects.
"Yes, some players [have been with us] since 2004, the beginning of my DFB [German FA] activity. Here are [Philipp] Lahm, [Lukas] Podolski, [Per] Mertesacker, [Bastian] Schweinsteiger and [Miroslav] Klose. Then came some from 2008 to 2010. We have all grown, and continue to grow."
Low also left the door open for Klose to make a starting appearance in the team's third and final group game against Denmark.
"We have played two games, and have six [points]. I know that we necessarily need Miro, and I can imagine that he plays from the start."
Germany take on Morten Olsen's men on Sunday evening. Kick-off at Arena Lviv is scheduled for 20:45CET.
