If his wife allows it. 

This is the so-called Danelaw introduced into medieval Britain. Ever since then, we have to get the wife’s permission. 

Seriously, though: I would never guess that someone named O'Riley, spotted by Basil Fawlty and now playing for Celtic, would be Danish. Did he once play for Torquay?

He never played for a ny danish clubs. Born in the outer parts of London, has a danish mother and was eligible to play for England, Denmark or Norway. Played two matches for Denmark's senior team and six for Denmark's U21 (Wikipedia is wrong) and made sure he can sing along to the Danish national hymn.

He never lived in Denmark and doesn't speak or understand proper danish, but gets by. Was a decisive factor in the Scottish league for Celtic.
