It is the talk of the town
It is the theme of the week
It is the most fierce and most entertaining rivalry in the country
It is a game that brings the country to a standstill
A game that can gather 90 000 people in one room
it is the Soweto derby
It is a game of unpredictable nature
An unpleasant game full of goosebumps
at both ends of the pitch it is the El Kasico
From the olden days of the rivalry till today
We still shout shapa khosi shapa n fasa ndoda emnyama
as we all seek the Soweto bragging rights
It is a game played by two giants of South African football
It is the El Kasico
It is the Soweto Derby
It is the game that separates Soweto
into the colours black and white or the black and gold
of Amakhosi
A game that brings total tension and animosity
to the Buccaneers’ and Glamour Boys’ fans
A game full of hard tackles spectacular goals
scintillating and accelerating passes
cheers and shout-outs from supporters
It is a game of high magnitude and quality
It is one of largest and most popular fixtures
on the continent
and one of the most admired football fixtures
in the world
