    the players have come in


    I quote a football player, 'The manager has a great squad here every time hes changed the team the players have come in and performed well'.

    How do you understand the highlighted part? I think it means that players take a part in a game.

    I would appreciate any comment you might have.

    Re: the players have come in

    Yes. The new players have come into the structure of existing players, and fit in immediately - but not necessarily for just one match.
