Grant Wahl: In Angola, a volatile mix of soccer and politics

CABINDA, Angola -- When Angola tied Algeria 0-0 on Monday in Luanda to finish first in Group A of the Africa Cup of Nations, it was cause for celebrations throughout most of Angola. Wherever you go in Luanda, the capital, you'll see locals wearing the national-team colors of red, black and yellow. Angola shirts, scarves and flags are everywhere there; TV and radio broadcasts talk soccer around the clock. Billboards proclaim that Angola, which ended a 27-year civil war in 2002, can unite through soccer.
