I shed a tear last night for Claudio, for football and for my club.

What is the real meaning of the three "for" in this single sentence?

Which definition is the best on this web: https://www.thefreedictionary.com/for ?

Many thanks,

Best wishes,
Audiendus

Probably 3a (used to indicate the recipient or beneficiary of an action). You are offering them a tear of sympathy.
