Says Gusztáv Sebes:

Our observers reported it, but it was also our opinion that the West Germans were settling in for defense and if they got some air, they wanted to carry out raiding attacks. We also developed Herberger's idea. It looked like this in a drawing: West Germany drawn by Gusztáv Sebes
As can be seen in the drawing, Posipal and Kohlmayer were given the task of neutralizing the two Hungarian wingers. The West Germans considered Kocsis to be the most dangerous Hungarian striker and therefore concentrated most of their forces here. Mai was withdrawn to guard the Hungarian insider, but Liebrich took care of Kocsis with all his might. Fritz Walter pulled back deeply to help the defense and he was the launcher of the attacks as well. The threads collided with him. Herberger expected Czibor to play left-wing in the Hungarian team, so Rahn had to come back several times and help the defense.

For us, this was our idea of Herberger’s tactics and, as the facts later proved, we were on the right track because the only way the West Germans ’tactics changed was that Schäffer had to go back several times to help Kohlmayer shut down Czibor instead of Rahn.
After imagining the tactics of the West Germans to be applied against us, we also planned the fighting method of the Hungarian team.
The main feature of the Hungarian team's tactics is to strengthen the attack without weakening the defense. The Hungarian tactics in the drawing looked like this: Hungary drawn by Gusztáv Sebes
The players all understood the tasks and made a promise to try to complete them correctly.
