終於在 2017 年一切漸漸有了改變。初夏六月，中華男足客場逆轉新加坡，為亞洲盃資格留下一線生機。八月世大運由中華女足 3:0 戰勝阿根廷拿下台灣賽會首勝，延續足球熱潮。
九月中旬，Gary J. White 與其教練團入主中華男足，不到一個月的時間，要準備十月在主場面對巴林的關鍵戰役，誓言要讓台灣足球變得性感並改變台灣足球的 DNA。而改變，早已在基層萌芽。9 月 18 日亞足聯 U16 錦標賽，中華小將面對汶萊，奮戰至最後一刻逆轉戰局 2:1 獲勝。緊接著雙十國慶中華男足激戰巴林，在全場近八千名觀眾的吶喊下，逆轉勝再次屬於中華男足。這是我們期待的足球，也是我們付出的理由！
十一月初在新竹舉行的亞足聯 U19 錦標賽資格賽，小將們一路拼鬥，背負著取分壓力，最後一役將要對上澳門，最終 2:0 獲勝，也讓我們歷經 44 年後重返 U19 亞錦賽的決賽圈。
十二月，台灣罕見的在自家舉辦國際足球邀請賽，三日三戰，連克菲律賓、東帝汶與寮國，快意拿下三連勝，也一嚐賽事奪冠的滋味。經歷風起雲湧的一年，中華男足受邀至總統府參與 2018 年元旦的升旗典禮，不僅迎接今年第一道曙光，也迎來台灣足球嶄露頭角的希望。
隨著2018 年 1 月 18 日公布 FIFA 最新排名，台灣來到歷史性新高 134 名，意味著我們已走上改變的道路，儘管變革並不容易，但團結是唯一的答案，不論是球迷、教練、球員與主事者，都應一同為此奮戰。期待有一日，可以透過足球，讓世界看見台灣。
