Forlorn vs desperate

Forlorn vs desperate

Hello,
I have the following sentence but i can't decide which option I should opt for:

On being told that his team had not made it to the finals, his face dropped, and he looked most...............

1. desperate
2. forlorn
3. pitied
4. rejected

I think that 'forlorn' is the right option but i have doubts about 'desperate' too. Please advise.
Thank you
