US and Iran - common ground

Interesting intersection of soccer and politics - Iran names an Iranian-American as their national soccer coach.  There's also an interview of Afshin Ghotbi conducted before he was named as Iran's coach at the NYTimes Goal blog.  Ghotbi has previously coached in both Iran and the United and was an assisant for the US World Cup team in 1998 (which was so bad, maybe Ghotbi was an Iranian mole!).

Whenever US-Iranian relations start to thaw, I think a big part should be a friendly match played between US and Iran.  The ideal result would be a tie.
