Following a string of leaks, Call of Duty has confirmed legendary footballers Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Paul Pogba are heading into all areas of the shooter franchise. Coinciding with the start of the 2022 World Cup, Activision has joined forces with the players to add some footballing flair to COD Mobile, Warzone 2, and Modern Warfare 2.

With their imminent arrival across three titles, players are starting to wonder how to unlock Messi, Neymar, and Pogba skins. Just like the previous crossovers and collaborations, there's a high chance of the process being extremely straightforward.

Before we take a closer look at Call of Duty Messi, Neymar, and Pogba skins, check out our guides containing all the intel on Warzone 2 season 1 and the best Modern Warfare 2 guns to use in multiplayer.

How to unlock Messi in Call of Duty

There's a strong possibility of the Argentinian magician appearing in his very own bundle. Like other premium cosmetic bundles, getting your hands on Messi is likely to cost 2400 COD Points.

Simply head into the in-game store on COD Mobile, Warzone 2, or Modern Warfare 2 to purchase the bundle as soon as it releases on November 29.

How to unlock Neymar in Call of Duty

Unlocking Neymar follows exactly the same method as Messi. Spend 2400 COD Points on the bundle as soon as it hits the store to get your hands on the Brazilian winger.

Details on what the Neymar Call of Duty bundle contains are unknown but we expect it to contain a range of weapon blueprints and other cosmetic items alongside the in-game skin. Neymar hits the store on November 21.

How to unlock Pogba in Call of Duty

Last and by no means least is French midfield maestro Paul Pogba. The midfielder is no stranger to Call of Duty having appeared as part of FC Verdansk following the launch of the first Warzone title. Now, he's back with his very own Operator skin.

Head to the store, spend the points, and select him before dropping into the action. Pogba is available to purchase on November 25.

Call of Duty football skins release date

COD Mobile is the first game to include the arrival of Messi, Neymar, and Pogba. The skins are available as part of Season 10 which begins on November 9.

Activision hasn't confirmed when the footballers are heading their way to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer and Warzone 2 but we expect them to appear on November 20 which is when the World Cup in Qatar begins. Once we hear more about the contents of each bundle, we'll update the guide with all the intel.
