African Nations Cup concludes with magical final but plenty of questions

LIBREVILLE, Gabon -- Sport has a habit of forcing you into compromises.

You have to stretch the mind back only two years to recall an African Nations Cup final that became the tale of a goalkeeper; in that case, it was Ivory Coast's Boubacar Barry. This time around, it might well be a story of two. Five of the past nine finals have been settled by penalty shootouts, and if that is to be the fate of Sunday's meeting between Egypt and Cameroon, whoever is the hero will bring his own compelling narrative.

Between Egypt's posts will be Essam El-Hadary, the remarkable...
