It came during a 7-1 World Cup qualifying victory over Malta, so Brozo felt able to laugh off the bizarre incident.
In his attempts to clear a cross, Brozovic kicked the ball back onto his face and it ricocheted into the net.
His Inter teammates joined in the fun on Instagram, including Andrea Ranocchia.
“Finally tomorrow you can have facial surgery. Make yourself pretty!”
Nicolò Barella added that this was “the most beautiful goal of your career so far.”
