Candreva managed a rare strike as Inter won 3-0.
“It's a sign of unity, of caring about our work, the team and Inter," Candreva told Sky Sport Italia.
“We built on last week's first half performance, aware every game in Serie A is tough, and we got a good result to go into the break for international duty.
“We want a strong campaign, this is the first victory, so we can consider this a starting point.
“Obviously, three points are a morale booster and help us to train during the week with more confidence. This is a competitive squad and we all give 100 per cent when called upon."
