Is it permitted to be upset after your favourite soccer team lost an important match?

I have a friend who is extremely into international sports games. When the team that he supports loses an important game, he gets really upset. When his team recently got kicked out of the competition I caught him almost crying. Now whatever his mental issues are, why is this not Ossur? Should it not go under

You cried a futile crying and so I will give you something to cry about

that Hashem told the Yidden when they cried by the meraglim?

Tears that are shed for such stupid things are probably not even counted at all!
