Cabaye now hopes that he and his teammates can carry their form into their next game against Switzerland on Friday.
"It's satisfying," he told L'Equipe. "We must continue to think collectively and to play to win. Victories - these are what allow you to have a more positive vision for the future.
"The competition has only just begun. The most important thing was to win the first match. We will see in time what we can do."
Cabaye has scored three goals in 31 games for France since making his debut back in 2010.
