Wikipedia article of the day for September 30, 2016

The Wikipedia article of the day for September 30, 2016 is FC Porto in international club football.
FC Porto's record in international club competitions is the best among Portuguese association football teams. They have won two UEFA Champions League (1987, 2004) and two UEFA Europa League (2003, 2011) titles, one UEFA Super Cup (1987), and two Intercontinental Cups (1987, 2004). They were also the runners-up in the Cup Winners' Cup in 1984 – their first European final – and in the UEFA Super Cup in 2003, 2004, and 2011. They played their first international competition match against Athletic Bilbao for the 1956–57 European Cup, and have qualified every season for UEFA competitions since 1974–75. After their 1986–87 European Cup success, Porto won the UEFA Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup in their first appearances, and they remain the only Portuguese team to have won either of these trophies. Tomislav Ivić and José Mourinho, former head coaches, each won a record two international titles. Former Portuguese goalkeeper and captain Vítor Baía holds the club record for most international appearances (99), while Colombian striker Radamel Falcao holds the record for goals, with 22.
