So it might not have taken place in a World Cup game or a World Cup Qualifier but anytime Australia topples a football super power, let alone the reigning World champions, is a moment worth mentioning ahead of Brazil 2014.
On the 14th of July 1988, Charlie Yankos scored what many still regard as the best Socceroos goal of all time. It-s a big call but it didn-t hurt that it was in a 4-1 win over Argentina. The sides met in Sydney in the Bicentennial Gold Cup and Australia, captained by Yankos, stunned the South Americans. One-all after 30 minutes, just before half time Yankos fired a breathless, unstoppable free kick from over 30 metres out to put the Socceroos in the box seat at the break.
The strike inspired the Socceroos to go on with it in the second half and record a famous win, the result seeing them go on to face Brazil in the final.
