Frédéric Herpoel (-nlˈfreː.də.rɪk ˈɦɛr.pul) (born 16 August 1974 in Mons) is a Belgian former football goalkeeper. At the age of 7 he began to play for S.C. Havré and then moved to Anderlecht in 1988 where he played in the youth team. Between 1993 (his arrival in the senior squad) and 1997, Herpoel only played 4 Jupiler League games for the Brussels side. He was then signed by Gent in 1997 and played regularly for them for over a decade, before joining Mons. Herpoel was selected 39 times times for Belgium but he gathered only 7 caps. He was in the team for the Euro 2000 as third goalie and the 2002 World Cup as second goalie. He was the second choice after Geert De Vlieger when Robert Waseige was the national team manager, and later after Silvio Proto when Aimé Antheunis coached the national team, whereupon he decided to quit the national team in 2005, disappointed not to be chosen as the first choice goalkeeper.
