Iran Vs United States. Multiple football matches to improve relations between two nations. what can be the outcome ?

I love sports & I was wondering why sports is not being used as a tool to improve relations between two countries that have differences maybe with the help of UN or any mediator.

Like multiple sporting events between.

North Korea/South Korea
North Sudan Vs South Sudan
Iran Vs United States

Thousand of people in the ground & millions watching live. what would be the outcome ? Would it also change the minds of politician ?

Thanks.

    That is a great idea!!! I am sure ordinary people on both sides are not enemies. I really hope tensions between both countries can be lowered and football matches can happen...
