Best soccer in the World today is being played in Spain. There national team is absolutely incredible and heads and shoulders above anyone elses while their clubs Barcelona (probably the greatest team that ever played) and Real Madrid are on a totally other level than any other club team on the planet. Argue and hate all you want but if you want to watch the essence of how to play beautiful and winning soccer look to Spain.
