Will Italy regain its 3rd position ranking in the UEFA League Co-efficient if Inter wins the Champions Final?

I checked the statistics: If Inter wins in regulation, then Italy as a country gains 2 points and Germany none, and that would be enough for Italy to be ranked 3rd and gain the fourth spot for the 2011-12 Champions League. I am less sure of what happens if Inter wins in extra time or on penalties. Obviously, if Inter loses in any way, Germany retains its 3rd ranking.

Answer on Will Italy regain its 3rd position ranking in the UEFA League Co-efficient if Inter wins the Champions Final?

Italy will become number 2 if Inter wins because.................they have three of the best teams in Europe.........Inter, Sampdoria, and AS Roma................it will be number 2
