Can you help me with English please?

He is convinced that his team is the best one, which can win the competition.

1. What does "convinced" mean in this case?

2. He is convinced means who is he? It means he is a player or anyone? I am a bit confused.

Thank you!

    "Being convinced" means that any person has a large belief that something will happen. I might say: "I am convinced that it will rain tomorrow".

    In your example it has no connection with being a player. "He" might be a team supporter of some sort, maybe he simply attends the matches.

    I also have a feeling, in fact I am almost convinced (!), that the person who wrote that sentence containing "He was convinced...." is not a native speaker of British English.

    1. He is confident, really sure, has thought about it points in favor and agaisnt and conclude his team will win.

    2. He maybe or not be a member of the team. "His team" may mean that he is :

    a. A player / team member,

    b. A fan,

    c. The owner or manager of the team, etc..

    Convinced is more than confident, it is certain. Rightly or wrongly, he has no doubt.

    Convinced means confident. "He" could be a player or a fan of the team.

    It means confident of his feelings and nothing will change his mind.
