    for a football team

    Now I play for a football team.

    Is "for" correctly used here? Should I replace "for" with "in/on"?

    Thanks!

    "For" is good. "On" is OK. "In" doesn't work.

    Re: for a football team

    Hello.

    When I see that someting is good and something is OK, I'm getting confused.

    What would you use, Mike?

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    I could go either way. As a stand-alone, I would choose "for".
