I wasn’t able to watch El Clasico. But the two top teams in Spain put on a true treat. Watching the two best forwards in the world play on the highest level.
I know that the World Cup has the highest value. But right now, the best in the world are centered in Europe. I realize that players like Neymar are still in their home leagues.
But the fact that UEFA Champions League and just regular league play that occurs throughout the year with the best competition; that is becoming more important. National pride will never go away. But the grind of playing hard in both league and UEFA has to take a bigger role in soccer pantheon.
