Hatem Ben Arfa uses some kind of magnetic ball trick to beat five defenders and score

Unbelievable goal from @Hatem_Ben_Arfa, as the former @NUFC star beats five men before slotting home for @ogcnice. http://t.co/1S6gOMRZnh

Hatem Ben Arfa is back in Ligue 1 after washing out at Newcastle and in Nice’s 4–1 win over St. Etienne, he provided a glimpse of why clubs keep giving him more chances. Ben Arfa evaded five defenders in ways that defy scientific explanation on his way to scoring his second goal in a span of six minutes before the end of the first half.

So now we know that this is apparently something that’s possible.
