Yes eventually: If you are currently being treated for a meniscus tear, it would be wise to avoid soccer for the time being until you have completed treatment. In the long run, once you have healed, you should be able to return to soccer, but just keep in mind that every year we get older, our bodies become a little more susceptible to injuries. Good luck!

Wrong grading system: Meniscal tears are not graded in this fashion. There must be some misunderstanding. Meniscal tears can be medial or lateral or both. They have a specific shape or type of tearing. They can be repairable or non-repairable. If the meniscus has been fixed or repaired, usually regular activities can be resumed after healing.
