Zinedine Zidane's decision to come out of international retirement has been made official by his selection in the France squad to face the Ivory Coast.
Zidane is back at the age of 33
Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele, 32, and Juventus defender Lilian Thuram, 33, are also in Raymond Domenech's squad after making similar U-turns.
Zidane, 33, will reclaim the captaincy from Patrick Vieira for the game in Montpellier next Wednesday.
The Real Madrid midfielder quit playing for France after Euro 2004 in Portugal.
But he claimed earlier this week that he had been persuaded to return by a mysterious voice that spoke to him during the night.
He later angrily denied he had had a religious experience, saying the voice was his brother's.
Newcastle defender Jean-Alain Boumsong, William Gallas of Chelsea, Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse are also included in the squad, along with present and former Arsenal captains Thierry Henry and Vieira.
The game will serve as a warm-up for France's two World Cup qualifying matches next month.
They face the Faroe Islands at home on 3 September and the Republic of Ireland in Dublin four days later.
France are currently fourth in Group Four, three points behind leaders the Republic of Ireland.
Switzerland are second with 12 points with Israel in third spot on 11.
France squad: Gregory Coupet, Mickael Landreau; Lilian Thuram, Willy Sagnol, William Gallas, Jean-Alain Boumsong, Gael Givet, Jonathan Zebina, Sebastien Squillaci; Claude Makelele, Patrick Vieira, Zinedine Zidane, Jerome Rothen, Alou Diarra, Vikash Dhorasoo; Thierry Henry, Sylvain Wiltord, Djibril Cisse, Sidney Govou, Florent Malouda, David Trezeguet.
