Wesley Sneijder has called on his Holland team-mates to rediscover their best form against Portugal and keep their Euro 2012 dream alive.
Bert van Marwijk's men are facing early elimination after losing to Denmark and Germany in their opening two Group B games, and must beat Portugal to stand any chance of staying in the tournament.
They also need Germany to do them a favour and defeat Denmark, but Sneijder is trying to stay positive and hopes Holland can finally deliver the type of performance they are capable of.
"We know that our game needs to improve. We need to get our routines on the pitch back, the things we are used to, the courage to play," the midfielder told reporters.
"Maybe in that last game, because we know we have to win it, there'll be no other chance.
"It's all or nothing on Sunday and perhaps we can bring our own football back in that game."
Winger Arjen Robben accepts that there will be no easy fix to Holland's problems as there are so many areas where they need to improve.
"There is no cohesion between our lines, there are gaps and we are not connecting and then it is very difficult to recover the ball," said Robben.
"At the moment we are not steady as a team like we were two years ago and there is not one area to blame. We failed as a team.
"Now we have to hope that Germany will do their duty against the Danes and we have to avenge our first two defeats and hope.
"We are not in control now and that doesn't feel good."
