He is the best soccer player "on" his team. vs He is the best soccer player "in" his team

  • He is the best soccer player on his team.
  • He is the best soccer player in his team

Are both preposition correct? I learned that when we make superlative expresstion, we usually use preposition in or of. For example, she is the most beautiful girl in the world. So I wonder if it is right to use other perepositions in superlative expresstion.
