Epic Games recently released a trailer for the next season of Fortnite, teasing a collaborative skin between the game and Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, a professional Brazilian soccer player.

While it may have been easy to miss over some of the minute details pertaining to the skin, soccer fans were quick to identify and close-in on the clues. According to several, the image line containing an angry eye, segmented number 10, body logo, and circular swirling pattern actually match up to several earmarks surrounding the player and the sport.

Fortnite x Neymar Collaboration Skin Teased for Season 6

Fans speculate the angry eye is actually a reference to the team's yellow bird mascot who bears an equally aggressive expression. The style of the "10" with a cut through its zero mimics the same number and design on the back of Neymar's jersey—as does the chest close-up. Finally, the pattern is the same one that appears on some official soccer balls.

As if that wasn't enough of a tip-off, Fortnite's Brazilian-counterpart account on Twitter briefly changed their typical llama icon to that of a llama bearing what many have spotted as Neymar's previous mohawk hairstyle.

Whether the skin will be available through the Season 6 battle pass or make its way to the item shop is unknown—though many speculate the latter is more probable. There is also no word on when the skin would hit either location. Fortunately, that information is likely forthcoming.

Neymar, himself, is best known for this skills in Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) in the gaming community—though tends to frequent Fortnite from time to time.
