JavaScript React Basics Understanding State Remove Items From State

removePlayer function not working

My code isn't producing the intended result, the players names are not being removed from the array when I click the "x" next to their name.

const Player = (props) => {
    return (
        <div className='player'>
            <span className='player-name'>
            <button className="remove-player" onClick={ () => props.removePlayer(props.id) }></button>
                {props.name}
            </span>
            <Counter />
        </div>
    )
}

class App extends React.Component {

    state = {
        players: [
            {
                name: "Guil",
                id: 1
            },
            {
                name: "Treasure",
                id: 2
            },
            {
                name: "Ashley",
                id: 3
            },
            {
                name: "James",
                id: 4
            }
        ]
    };

    handleRemovePlayer = (id) => {
        this.setState( prevState => {
            return {
                player: prevState.players.filter( p => p.id !== id )
            };
        });
    }

    render () {
        return (
            <div className='scoreboard'>
                <Header title="Scoreboard" totalPlayers={this.state.players.length} />

                {/* player list */}
                {this.state.players.map(player =>
                    <Player 
                     name={player.name}
                     id={player.id} 
                     key={player.id.toString()} 
                     removePlayer={this.handleRemovePlayer}
                    />
                )}
            </div>
        );
    }
}


ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));

I fixed it. On this line, I typed "player" instead of "players"

The code is working normally.

return {
                player: prevState.players.filter( p => p.id !== id )
            };
