Les Bleus face Cyprus and Slovenia in an international double header taking place on September 6 and 10, and coach Jacques Santini has not made any sweeping changes.
Steve Marlet's move to France has not disrupted his presence in the squad, whilst Barthez has not been dropped from his national side despite sliding down the Manchester United ranks.
Arsenal quartet Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Sylvain Wiltord and Robert Pires are all named, along with Mikael Silvestre and Barthez from Manchester United, and Chelsea's Marcel Desailly.
There is no place for Chelsea duo Gallas or Emmanuel Petit.
