Although the 26-year-old missed a penalty, his display was pleasing for former Chelsea manager Mourinho.
"Adriano did his job. He still has to improve his velocity and self-confidence but I'm satisfied with him and the whole team," Mourinho told Inter's website.
"I'm not concerned about the missed penalty.
"We all make mistakes, the important thing is to have the right attitude, desire, respect for the team and the fans.
"If Adriano works like this, a missed penalty means nothing."
