what is the highest stage or level in soccer, is it the chamions league or as most people agree on; the world cup? I think not, the worlds highest stage is to play for the worlds superpower teams. These are arguably the following: Manchester United, Arsenal, Ac milan, inter milan, real madrid, barcelona, bayern munich, juventos, and soon to be :chelsea. There are also a lot of other great teams that are not superpowers, such as lazio, liverpool, ect. I think that playing for these teams is considered to be the worlds highest platform for soccer.
