Germany's assistant coach Hans-Dieter Flick insists they will focus on victory in their final game but striker Lukas Podolski is already looking ahead to the last eight, and a possible clash with Poland.
Podolski was born in Poland and is keen for them to qualify from Group A and set up a clash with Germany, who are odds on to top Group B after securing two wins from two games.
But he has told the Poles in no uncertain terms that Germany will dash the co-hosts' hopes if they do manage to secure a quarter-final berth.
"I will watch the Poland game against Czech Republic [Saturday] and have my fingers crossed for them, but if we play against them in the quarter-finals, they will lose," the 27-year-old declared.
Podolski has been a peripheral figure in Germany's victories over Portugal and Netherlands but he has promised to up his performance level.
"I expect a lot from myself and will do more offensively," he added. "I feel very comfortable in the German team and I hope it will go on like this. I am very proud of myself but the statistics do not mean that much to me. In my career, I have other goals."
Podolski might have one eye on the latter stages of the tournament but coach Joachim Low's assistant Hans-Dieter Flick has vowed not to be distracted by events in the other game on Sunday as they take on Denmark knowing a draw will put them through.
Should Germany lose only a Netherlands win could send them out and even then goal difference would come into the equation.
"Of course we need to know about it, but we are not thinking about that yet because everything is in our own hands,'' he said. "We have six points against two very strong opponents and no other team have two wins so far.
"We have got an optimal return and we now need a good performance over 90 minutes against Denmark and then we will have taken the step that we all wanted.
"We have six points, no more and no less, and it is important we beat Denmark to win the group so that we can play the next game in Gdansk.''
Despite back-to-back victories over two of the pre-tournament favourites, no-one in the German camp is getting carried away.
Striker Mario Gomez has scored all their goals so far but he claims talk of a repeat of the Euro 2008 final - between Germany and Spain - is premature.
"Everybody is talking about a Germany-Spain final, but there is a long way to go to get there,'' he said. "We have not achieved anything yet. We are in a good position with these wins, but there is a long way to go and you cannot draw conclusions after only two games.''
Flick added: "We were one of the favourites before the tournament and I don't think anything has changed. We saw the Spanish yesterday, admittedly against a very inferior opponent, play their great short-passing game and it is impressive the way they work.
"There are also France or Italy, to name just two, who are in the group of favourites. It is going to be interesting to the very end.''
