Getting ready for the World Cup at Madiba Restaurant in Brooklyn (Femi Oke/ The Takeaway)

At Madiba Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York, on the first day of the World Cup, the bar was full of enthusiastic fans of the South African team. The fans tell us which teams they're supporting and talk about what connects them to their team. In the video (after the jump), they are singing a song called "Shosholoza" which means "Go Forward"; it's a song that's often sung at soccer games in South Africa.
