Popular sporting events such as the Olympics and the football World Cup help to ease international tensions and allow people to show feelings of patriotism in a safe way.

Now look at a sample introduction for this essay:
With so many conflicts taking place between different countries around the world it is certainly a relief to see nations competing positively during international sports championships such as the Olympics. In this way, I believe it does give people an opportunity to support their national athletes and display patriotic emotions in a harmonious environment. However, to say that such events help to alleviate cross-border tensions is perhaps a rather naive view.
Now look at this topic sentence for the 1st paragraph (in agreement with the first part of the statement)
Despite today’s worldwide migration, people still like to have a reason to feel proud of their home country.
