    I have made corrections in red above, but I don't think either of your sentences flowed very well. My suggestion would be:

    Many amateur soccer players are not good at teamwork (or at playing as a team). They play as individuals and don't pass the ball as often as they should.

    The first 5 online dictionaries all list "teammate" as a single word. This is the word I'm familiar with.
