Let the 2 roots of the equation x22x1=0x^2-2x-1=0 be α\alpha and β\beta. If f(x) is a cubic polynomial that satisfies the following conditions, what is the value of f(-2)?

f(α)=2α,f(β)=2β,f(α+β)=2α+2β,f(αβ)=4f(\alpha )=2\alpha ,\quad f(\beta )=2\beta ,\quad f(\alpha +\beta )=2\alpha +2\beta ,\quad f(\alpha \beta )=4
