A check of five dictionaries and Wiktionary shows that the word 'soccer' is a noun only, not an adjective. (I don't know who decides these things.)

When a noun is used to describe another noun, such as soccer ball or soccer field, it's called an attributive noun.

A pronoun is any word that acts as a noun. An adjective modifies a noun.
