Candie Monique Nadine Herbert (born 4 June 1977 in Seclin) is a French football player currently playing for FCF Hénin-Beaumont of the Division 1 Féminine. Herbert plays as a striker and is a member of the France women's national football team making her debut in 1994.


Herbert began her career playing for FCF Hénin-Beaumont, where she established herself as an international making her debut for France at the age of 17. She later joined USO Bray-la-Buissière before finally settling in with ASJ Soyaux at the start of the new millennium. Herbert spent seven productive years at the club making 98 league appearances and scoring 46 goals. In 2007, she returned to Hénin-Beaumont and, in her second season with the club, scored a career high 13 goals. The 2009–10 season saw the emergence of the much more younger attacker Pauline Crammer. Due to this and other circumstances, Herbert began the season with the Hénin-Beaumont reserves in the women's third division, where she currently remains.

International career[edit]

Herbert made her international debut on 14 May 1994 in a 1–1 draw with Italy. She has collected 79 caps since her debut scoring 11 goals. On 28 October 2009, Herbert scored her first international brace in a 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification match against Estonia. The match saw France hammer Estonia 12–0. Herbert has participated in several international tournaments for her nation beginning with UEFA Women's Euro 1997, UEFA Women's Euro 2001, UEFA Women's Euro 2005, and ending with UEFA Women's Euro 2009.
