U can use both singular and plural form when it comes to the “team” there is a bit different meaning if u use singular then u mean whole team as a institution when u use plural u mean players of this team

It doesn't matter that the team has multiple people in it, the word itself is singular, it's the same as saying Averyone are through to the playoffs or 'Bag of crackers' are delicious... Which are both wrong
