My tuppence worth: we could all register on a site that lets you run a private league. It also has the advantage of preventing cribbing of others' tips.
However if posting tips in a thread is the way to go how about:
1 point for correct outcome (win, loss, draw)
1 point for correct score (1-0, 2-1, etc)
1 point for first goalscorer
2 point bonus for all three (i.e. if you tip England to beat Trinidad 3-0 with Rooney as first goalscorer and all come to pass you get 5 points)

"This is not the time for namby-pamby promising youngsters who might just do something; not the time for building for the future. Pragmatism rules and they don't come more pragmatic than Rogers."
