Heartbreak is never an easy thing and people react to it differently; some people automatically unlock hidden talents like music and poetry, some cry, some sleep it off, some move on like it never happened and some people just do the weirdest things.
Nigerians have taken to Twitter to share their heartbreak experiences; from relationships to friendships, football clubs and random things that have hurt them. While some of these experiences are really hilarious, they’re so relatable and well, heartbreaking.
Check out these football stories where folks shared experiences when they got their heartbroken, lessons learned, and how they moved past it.

For relationship heartbreak. Your close friends will try to comfort you and ginger you most times.
But you see that football heartbreak. It’s banter here and there 😂😂. The streets go run you dryyyy.
Since we are talking about heartbreak, let’s talk about football heartbreak. Mine was US 94 when Nigeria lost to Azzurris. As a very young boy, I cried and refused to touch my food. The other ones are d champions league losses by United to Barca. I wan use alcohol finish myself— Consigliere (@kaizer747) November 11, 2020

Your club will lose and you will dodge highlights for one full week. You’ll leave Supersport and be watching National Geographic like say you be Tarzan.

Mine: Ghana vs Uruguay— SOUVENIR (Anti Kepa) 🇳🇬 (@tarifubara) November 11, 2020
2010 World Cup Quarter Final.
My first real football heartbreak.
Ghana was the only African country left so it was just fair that I supported them. I cried for two days. My class teacher asked me why I was crying, I told her I had apollo 😂
The only heartbreak I can remember is when Yakubu Ayigbeni missed that open chance against Korea in world cup. I couldn’t sleep that night. It still pain me.— Duke Of Nigeria. (@xagreat) November 11, 2020
