The statement is better with the comma and might well be wrong without it.

However, the statement is also either badly contrived or the result of bad teaching and either way contains mistakes quite aside from the question.

If the subject is ’team’, the makeup and performance are not ‘teams’ ’ but ’team’s ’.

Before that, ‘Team cannot…’ anything cannot be complete.

‘A (or the) team’ perhaps.

‘The concept of teams / a team’ perhaps but never just ‘team…’
