As part of the debut FOX Soccer Daily show, USA and LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan spoke exclusively with Stewart-Binks, talking about enjoying the game again, his future and much more.

When all was said and done, the show was wrapped and set lights dimmed, a new show was born. And this is just the beginning.
