After recording a shock 4-4 draw with Sweden in their previous World Cup qualifying fixture, Germany needed to put on an impressive performance to silence their critics.
However, a lion's share of possesion in the first half failed to give rise to a goal for Low's men, before Germany narrowly avoided defeat against Holland in the second period when they were found guilty of once more taking their feet off the pedal.
Speaking to ARD after the game, Low chose to emphasize on the positive aspects of his players' performance.
"For me, this was a positive game. We put in some good work defensively, which was the most important thing after our recent experiences against Sweden," he said.
"We had a changed team, with many regular missing. We played well positionally, and we were disciplined."
Although Low's opposite number, Louis van Gaal, sung the praises of the opposing team, he was also pleased with how the Dutch reacted to the Germans' style of play.
"I enjoyed the way Germany played in possession. They were quite impressive. We allowed them too much space and they took advantage of that. They didn't create many chances, though," van Gaal pointed out.
"We improved after the break. We didn't want to press them all over the pitch, but provocatively press them. That helped us create space for our attackers."
