Georgetown: The drubbing against Trinidad and Tobago done and dusted with, the Indian football team is deteremined to show a lot more character as it gears up to take on Guyana in the second match of its Caribbean tour on Wednesday.

On their arrival here, the Indian players were welcomed by Guyana Football Federation officials at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, but it would be a different ballgame altogether when Armando Coalaco's boys take the field against a team, which is ranked ranked 37 places above them in the FIFA charts.

Chief coach Coalco, however, expressed hope and confidence.

"This Indian team represents the whole nation as there are players from all the clubs of the country.

"After the loss against Trinidad and Tobago, we are looking forward to the game against Guyana and hope for a better result this time," Colaco told reporters here ahead of his team's match at the Guyana National Stadium.

Configured in the traditional 4-4-2 formation, Colaco's side will again look to attack mostly from the two flanks.

More than the result, Colaco is looking to use this experience as preparation for the World Cup qualifiers.

"We are not worried about winning since it is not a tournament of any sort. We will be using this as preparation for the World Cup qualifiers and at the end we will expect to learn something from Guyana as they will learn something about us," he said.

The players are expected to have a light training session with most of them indulging in recovery training, while the substitutes had a full training session under the watchful eyes of the support staff.

Guyana had played India once, in 1984, when they won 3-0.
