How to score a goal with the soccer ball as Neymar Jr. in Fortnite

To get the Neymar Jr. cosmetic, the other component, players must complete five quests from the island’s footballers.
Once both criteria are met, players will need to head to the soccer field, located in the southern half of Pleasant Park. While there is technically a soccer ball that can be kicked on the pitch, the Soccer Ball Toy Emote is the only ball that will actually complete the task.
