    Default stage

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "stage" in:
    "It's only international stage that Maradona has achieved his greatest accolades"

    What is the meaning of "International stage" in that conext?

    The structure is weird. It seems like someting was missing

    Thanks a lot.

    Stage:

    3
    [singular] the place or situation in which something happens, especially in politics

    the world/political/international stage: He is a skilled performer on the political stage.

    She’s not yet a politician of significance on the world stage.


    There's a missing preposition in your sentence:



    "It's only on the international stage that Maradona has achieved his greatest accolades"


    It means on the international level, not national.
