FC Porto - The 2010/11 Europa Champions

FC Porto revived its status as a European power by beating Sporting Braga 1-0 Wednesday night in an all-Portuguese Europa League final, the club's biggest title in seven years. Radamel Falcao scored in the 44th minute to notch his 17th goal of the season in Europe and become the record holder for most goals ever scored in one European campaign.

In winning Europe's No. 2 club competition, Porto earned its first continental title since the 2004 Champions League under coach Jose Mourinho. Porto also won this season's Portuguese league with a 30-0-3 record. In its first season under 33-year-old coach Andre Villas Boas, Porto tries to complete a treble when it plays Guimaraes in Sunday's Portuguese Cup final.

Villas Boas' men have won the tournament in seriously deserving fashion, steamrolling quality teams en route to a nearly perfect competition victory and the 33-year-old Portuguese became the youngest coach to win a European title.
