This is very typical in Europe, Western European Union Europe. Except for France.

Germans often do this. They'll even say "Happy Birthday" in English instead of translating sometimes. Perhaps they like the cadence of the crowd chanting "Let's go Schalke" in English as opposed to "Gehen wir Schalke"

germans are notorious for having long ridiculous words and have actually started adopting some english phrases for short. my german professor was not too happy about this, but she was probably 60, so maybe it's different with the younger generation.

one example she used to give all the time was, before the mid 2000's germany used to have 2 week closing sales after summer and winter, they used to be called "sommerschlussverkauf" and "winterschlussverkauf," now they go by simply summersale and wintersale. also, i say before the mid 2000's, because they can now have close out sales whenever, stores typically have winter sales at this time anyway, and call it as such.

like someone already mentioned happy birthday is a common saying in germany also. dont know how they chose which phrases to swap.

i'm sure straightcash can verify and add to this as well

Well it makes sense when something like 70% of the population can speak english on a passably conversational level.

Also consider their wide variety of words that describe human excrement.

English is to a European, what Spanish is to an American.
