Charlie Yankos started his local football career with former NSL club Heidelberg United in 1979 and became one of the greatest players to wear the gold and black colors. He was also an important part of APIA Leichhardt's 1987 NSL title victory.[2]

Charlie Yankos represented the Australian national team on 49 times including 13 world cup qualifiers, captaining the side on 30 occasions and scoring 7 international goals. He participated in the 1985 and 1989 World Cup qualifying campaigns, and also played in the Seoul Olympics in 1988 where Australia made the quarterfinals.

Yankos scored a long range goal from over 30 yards in the 1988 Australian Bicentennial Gold Cup against then-World Champions Argentina.[3] In a 1990 FIFA World Cup qualification away match against Israel, he scored an equaliser for Australia, again with a long range free kick.[4]

Following his retirement from football, Yankos moved into a successful career in business. He was inducted into the Football Australia Hall of Fame in 1999.
