But it's not just the semifinal spot that the Punjabi striker is setting his bar at.
"I want to win the AFC U-16 Championship as well. It is a tough task but it is not impossible. We can win the Championship if we believe in ourselves and have the grit."
Wary of the tough opponents in the group,Vikram further added that the team is prepared to get the better of his opponents.
"We will be taking one match at a time and the first goal is to progress out of the group stages. In the group stages the most difficult opponent will be Iran, but we have devised a plan for them as well.”
