Managing a club and leading a national team side are two very different things. You don't have the luxury of having foreigners in your team but you can pick anyone having an Indian passport in your squad.

Albert Roca had previously managed El Salvador and took them to the Third Round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, something which India has never been able to achieve before.

Igor Stimac might hold a slight advantage over Roca in this department as he led Croatia to the FIFA World Cup. But, one ought to note that Croatia are regulars in FIFA World Cup and the Qualifiers should have been a cakewalk for them but rather they made it through by the skin of their teeth, occupying the last spot in the ranking of second-placed teams.
