Sir Nick Faldo has hit out at Tiger Woods after the American superstar was given a two-shot penalty for a controversial drop at the Masters, saying he should disqualify himself from the tournament.

Woods hit his third shot against the flag stick on the 15th hole at Augusta, with the ball bouncing into the water. He then took a drop from what appeared to be the wrong place, two yards away from its original lie.

It was thought at one time that the world No 1 could have been disqualified, but he was given a reprieve on Saturday morning by rules officials.

However, three-time Masters winner Faldo told the Golf Channel that he should elect not to play the final two rounds, saying he 'should think about mark this will leave on his legacy'.

Faldo added: 'For me, this is dreadful. Absolutely, no intention to drop this as close as possible. Simply, a breach of rules.

'The rules of golf are black and white and Tiger broke them. He’s admitted he broke them. He should stand up and earn himself some brownie points and say to all his fellow professionals: ”I’ve broken the rules, I’m going home and I will see you next week.” He should consider the mark this will leave on his legacy.’

Woods will start the third round on one-under par, five off the lead held by Jason Day.

Golf's rules were changed a year ago, with players now not being disqualified for signing the wrong card.

New rules state that 'if the Committee is satisfied that the competitor could not reasonably have known or discovered the facts resulting in his breach of the Rules, it would be justified under Rule 33-7 in waiving the disqualification penalty prescribed by Rule 6-6d.'

David Beckham was given a less than warm welcome from Joey Barton but had the last laugh as Paris Saint-Germain came out on top against Marseille.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored both goals but all eyes were on Beckham as he made his first start for the French club – and Barton made his presence felt when he barged into his fellow Brit in the first half.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring 10 minutes before the break and made sure of the victory with a second-half penalty.

Beckham was later booked but was substituted to a standing ovation with five minutes remaining.

Thibaut Courtois thinks he will replace Petr Cech at Chelsea in 2015

Courtois: Give me two years and I'll oust Cech as Chelsea No 1

On-loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes he will wear the number one jersey at Stamford Bridge in 2015.

With Chelsea's current first choice keeper Petr Cech showing no signs of a dip in form, the statement certainly reveals the confidence of the Belgian international.

Courtios is currently on his second season-long loan at Athletico Madrid and has been in magnificent form since replacing David De Gea at the Vicente Calderon.

But the 20-year-old has been reassured by Chelsea that he is not for sale despite their reported interest in Jack Butland in January before his move to Stoke City.

‘Cech is one of the best goalkeepers
in the world, and I think I am an up and coming young talent with the
quality maybe also to play for Chelsea,' Courtois told the Evening Standard.

'They will continue with Cech for two more years, I believe.

'The problem is I think that Chelsea didn’t expect me to be at this level this soon. I’ve developed really quickly. It’s a very good situation for Chelsea.'

When quizzed about reports he would be used a makeweight as part of a deal to bring in Colombian striker Ramadel Falcao in the summer, he said: 'A lot of things the press say are nonsense. They are guessing.

'They know Chelsea want Falcao but Chelsea have told me, “The last thing we want to do is sell you”. Maybe they are lying to me but I don’t think so.

Speculation: Courtois believes the prospect of him being used in a deal for Chelsea to sign Ramadel Falcao is pure fiction

'It was strange joining Chelsea but when I signed for them I knew I would be loaned out to a team. They had a five-year plan for me.

'I only went to Chelsea to take my medical. I then went straight to Atletico and had a good year so I preferred to stay for another year.'

Chelsea must now consider how best to manage the young Belgian's development whilst Cech remains at the peak of his powers.

The Czech stopper penned a new contract in May that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2016, one year before Courtois plans to oust him as the undisputed first choice.

John Bishop had the Kop in stitches on Monday night after the comedian and Liverpool fan was hit in the face by a ball kicked by Anfield legend Robbie Fowler.

The unlikely duo graced the pitch at half-time during Liverpool's 2-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Fowler and comedian Bishop were on the pitch at Anfield during the break to support Liverpool's 'Seeing is Believing' initiative.

Fowler, accompanied by his son Jacob, and Bishop took penalties while blindfolded during the interval to support the charity.

Liverpool had replaced their usual 'Standard Chartered' sponsors with the slogan 'Seeing is Believing' to raise money for the charity which seeks to eradicate avoidable blindness in developing countries.

The jerseys the players wore during a smash-and-grab defeat by West Brom will be auctioned to aid the cause.

'It
was really enjoyable to take part and very important for myself and the
club as well to play our part and try to help these people.'

Follow Sportsmail's coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations final between Nigeria and Burkina Faso from Soccer City.

The showpiece pitches one of the rank outsiders against a side who are slowly clawing their way back to top of the tree on the continent.

Minnows Burkina Faso have never reached a final before, while Nigeria, driven on by Chelsea's Victor Moses, are twice winners of the competition.

NIGERIA v BURKINA FASO

Nigeria: Enyeama, Echiejile, Omeruo, Oboabona, Ambrose, Onanzi, Mikel, Mba, Moses, Ideye, Uche.

Burkina Faso: Diakite, Koffi, Kone, Koulibaly, Panandetiguiri, Kone, Kabore, Rouamba, Nakoulma, Pitroipa, Bance.

Referee: Djamel Haimoudi (Algeria)

18.17: Soccer City is noisy, the sounds of vuvuzelas droning across the ground. It's a dry, reasonably cool evening. Much will depend on how Nigeria cope with the loss of Emenike, while for Burkina Faso, Pitroipa will have a big role to play. Incidentally, his red card in the semi-final was for diving. The referee contacted the tournament organisers afterwards to say he'd made a mistake and asked for the card to be rescinded.

18.04: So it's the Super Eagles v the Stallions. These teams have already played each other once in the tournament. That game finished 1-1. Burkina Faso went on to win the group.

17.58: Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations final between Nigeria and Burkina Faso. Nigeria were impressive in their 4-1 defeat of Mali in the semi-finals, while surprise package Burkina Faso stunned Ghana with a penalty-shootout victory. Nigeria will start favourites, you'd think, but they are without striker Emmanuel Emenike, out through injury. Chelsea's Victor Moses plays despite an ankle knock. For Burkina Faso, Jonathan Pitroipa starts after his semi-final red card was rescinded. We kick off at 1830.

Craig Bellamy gets six-month driving ban

No-show Bellamy slapped with six-month driving ban and fined after speeding offence

Craig Bellamy was banned from driving and fined today after admitting a motoring offence.

The former Wales captain did not attend Liverpool Magistrates Court where he was disqualified for six months and ordered to pay a 900 fine plus 400 costs.

The court heard Bellamy failed to respond to a police notice of intended prosecution.

As well as a six-month driving ban, Bellamy was fined over 1,300

Fined: As well as receiving a six-month driving ban, Craig Bellamy was fined 1,300

Simon Leong, prosecuting, said the notice was sent to the Cardiff City star after his Audi was caught by a speed camera travelling at 64mph in a 50mph section of the M62 towards Liverpool at 3.05am on April 3 last year.

At the time the former Manchester City and Newcastle United star was playing for Liverpool.

Mr Leong said: 'A notice of intended prosecution was sent to his address but the defendant did not respond.'

Bellamy, 33, was charged with failing to give a driver’s identity as required under section 172 of the Road Traffic Act.

He initially pleaded not guilty and a trial was set for November 27 last year but that had to be abandoned for medical reasons.

Bellamy changed his plea to guilty on
December 18, the day his rescheduled trial was due to take place, and
the matter was adjourned until today’s sentencing.

Bellamy didn't turn up to court, but had already entered a guilty plea

Penalty points: Bellamy already had three previous speeding offences on record

Mr Leong said Bellamy had totted up nine penalty points for three previous speeding offences.

'This offence carries six points taking him over the threshold for disqualification,' he added.

John Rowan, defending, told the court the star initially denied the offence because the notice was sent to an address where he was not living at the time.

'A plea of guilty was substituted in relation to that and he did accept that perhaps he could have done more to intercept the notice and ensure that the details were completed,' the solicitor said.

'The defendant understands he will be disqualified, that he is a totter with nine points and this carries a penalty of six.

'This is his first disqualification.'

Mr Rowan told the court he was not
provided with information about the defendant’s income but added: 'I
should point out that Mr Bellamy is a former Premiership footballer. He
is not currently playing in the Premier League but he is a professional
footballer.'

Deputy District Judge Simmons said: 'I must impose penalty points and six penalty points is the required number.

'Given
that he has nine penalty points already he must be disqualified from
driving for a period of six months under the totting up provisions.'

She
gave Bellamy credit of 10 per cent for his guilty plea, ordering a fine of 900
plus 400 costs and 15 victim surcharge which he must pay within 14
days.

Tassew's sending off caused an
11-minute delay as the Group C match descended into near chaos with
angry Ethiopian fans throwing bottles and vuvuzelas on to the pitch.

They were already upset after their
key player Saladin Seid missed a penalty in the 25th minute having
already been deprived of an earlier goal when the ball bounced over an
open goal on the hard surface.

Ethiopia made a bright start to their
first game in the finals for 31 years and midfielder Minyahile Teshone
should have put them ahead after four minutes but somehow hooked a great
chance over the crossbar.

In the 17th minute Zambia keeper
Kennedy Mweene was caught out and the ball fell to Seid who found
himself with an open goal but his hooked shot towards the gaping net
bizarrely bounced over the bar.

The game then took an unedifying turn
after 32 minutes when Tassew raced out of his goal and poleaxed Chisamba
Lungu with a reckless tackle which evoked memories of the infamous foul

to throw missiles on the pitch and an official to run on the field and
remonstrate with the referee.

Just to add to the mayhem a jet fighter buzzed the stadium before order was finally restored.

Apart from Tassew's rash attack, and
some panicky moments in defence, Ethiopia played some neat football

Bend it like Beckham, having a Walters and doing a Klinsmann: Sportsmail"s football name game

The name game: Having a Walters, doing a Klinsmann, bending it like Beckham and a bit of Fergie time – the language of football

shootout against England) but players can look a bit foolish when it doesn't (we're referring to you here, Mr Lineker).

VIDEO: The Panenka penalty

The Klinsmann

Jurgen Klinsmann was known as someone who liked to take a tumble whenever possible, whether there was contact or not.

So, when he came to Tottenham in 1994, English crowds expected to see him dive – but not in the way he did. After scoring on his debut against Sheffield Wednesday, the striker sent up his reputation by diving across the turf in celebration.

And a craze was born.

Bend it like Beckham

OK, this came from a film title. You've got us. But the movie would not have got its name had it not been for Beckham's ability to hit stunning free-kicks and the term has entered the language of football.

The way the former England captain takes set-pieces is unique, running up to the ball at a 90-degree angle and hitting the ball with pace and swerve, often into the top corner of the goal or on to the head of a team-mate.

There is nobody else who can quite bend it like Beckham.

VIDEO: THAT free-kick against Greece

Grobbelaar legs

A goalkeeper known for his eccentricites – even among a section of football commonly referred to as mad – Bruce Grobbelaar's finest hour came in the 1984 European Cup final.

The game had gone to a penalty shootout and the Liverpool keeper decided to psyche out the Roma kick takers by 'wobbling' his legs on the line.

It worked and Liverpool won the European Cup. Twenty one years later Jerzy Dudek tried it and Liverpool won again. Maybe you have to play for Liverpool for it to work…

VIDEO: See Roma wobble as Grobbelaar does his 'spaghetti legs'

The Higuita

From one eccentric goalkeeper to another. This is also known as the Scorpion kick and Colombia's Rene Higuita lit up Wembley when he pulled it off in 1995.

A cross by Jamie Redknapp (now better known to you all as a Sportsmail columnist) was looping harmlessly towards the goal and Higuita thought 'It's a friendly, let's liven it up a bit', jumped, arced his feet behind his back and backheeled the ball while in mid air.

It was an astonishing piece of skill and led to a number of people needing hospital treatment after injuring themselves trying to replicate it.

VIDEO: Higuita's amazing Scorpion kick

The Zidane turn

Also known as the Marseille turn, the great Frenchman was a regular exponent of the move and left many a defender bamboozled as he glided past them.

It is more of a pirouette, in truth, and Zidane would drag the ball from the sole of one boot to the other in order to beat the defender.

That was the beautiful side of his game, the other side we witnessed at the 2006 World Cup final…

Yeboah volley

This one came on the back of a stupendous goal by Tony Yeboah for Leeds against Liverpool and the Sky commentator's cry of 'Yeboaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah' as the striker's volley crashed in off the bar and into the net.

For weeks after, if anybody in the playground or in an amateur game scored any type of volley, someone would inevitably echo the commentary and the Ghanaian's name entered the football dictionary.

VIDEO: Yeboah's screamer

We were going to stop there but the board has been raised and we're into…

Fergie time

The Manchester United manager's famous look at his watch is an integral part of football. It helps, of course, that his side score so regularly once the clock has ticked past 90 minutes.

This has led to the perception that, should United be losing as the game enters its final exchanges, Ferguson looking at his wrist will lead to more added time being played and a goal being scored.

This may or may not be true but the Old Trafford faithful gleefully sing about 'Fergie time' to rile opposition fans who complain about the referee 'playing until United score'.

Sale 33 Worcester 27: Cueto grabs record-equalling try to earn vital win for strugglers

Danny Cipriani won the praise of arch-critic John Mitchell after he helped struggling Sale to a crucial Premiership win.

The much-criticised fly half kicked 18
points and helped fire Sale in a second-half which was capped by a
record-equalling Premiership try from Mark Cueto.

Cueto struck in the 58th minute to
round off a sweeping Sale move which put him level on tries at the top
of the Premiership charts alongside former Sale wing Steve Hanley.

Cipriani converted the try and two late penalty goals helped him rebound from the criticism of Mitchell, the former All Blacks coach, following that trouncing at Toulon two weeks ago when he was vilified for his poor tackling.

Mitchell, Sale’s new consultant coach, dropped him for last week’s trip to his old club Wasps but had to pick him last night when Nick Macleod suffered a back injury.

And Cipriani did not let Sale down making a full contribution including a 100 per cent goal-kicking record by converting seven chances out of seven.

It left Mitchell commenting that Cipriani had shown the talent he was capable of. But he added it was only ‘one’ response and he is now expected to play a full part every week.

Mitchell said: ’Danny played well and defensively he showed some improvement. I would still like to see get his ‘shoulders’ on – I think everyone would.

‘But he stiffened up defensively which is what we have asked him to do. But we clearly need him at this level every week – not just one in three.’ Victory for bottom-placed Sale puts them a point behind 11th-placed London Irish who play champions Harlequins at Twickenham today.

But for the first part of last night Sale looked set to suffer another defeat. The conceded Worcester three easy penalty goals to Andy Goode and looked off the pace.

A try-saving tackle by full-back Rob Miller on Nikki Walker lifted Sale and they had fought back by half-time to be only 14-16 down, lock Richie Gray having scored a try to one by Worcester’s Neil Best.

Cipriani and Goode exchanged penalties in the second half before Sale found the winning edge when Cueto scooted over on the right for a try which his fly half converted.

That score put Sale 27-22 ahead and two late penalties by Cipriani kept Sale ahead despite Worcester’s grabbing a late try through flanker Matt Kvesic. Good failed to land the conversion in a final period when his usual accurate kicking boots let him down as he also missed two penalties.
