if (function_exists('nomikos_fifa_world_cup_scoreboard_widget_manual'))
  • It will show random groups with date and one row by match.

Using parameters:

if (function_exists('nomikos_fifa_world_cup_scoreboard_widget_manual'))

  • date (0|1): show date of match.
  • one_row (0|1): reduce the output. useful in small sidebars.
