The Napoli midfielder attributes that performance to first-night nerves, but claims that he and his teammates will be a little more at ease against Les Bleus in Salvador later today.
"We were a little nervous in the first game and the start wasn't easy because Ecuador were playing very well," Inler told reporters.
"After that great victory over Ecuador we believe in ourselves and we know that we need to be more relaxed.
"I think the whole team is more relaxed right now but France will be or next challenge, a next final and we want to play a good match."
Tonight's encounter kicks off at 8pm.
