Juventus defender Lilian Thuram confirmed he would make his international comeback in France's [Images] friendly against Ivory Coast in Montpellier on August 17.
"Yes, I'm coming back," Thuram said on Sunday.
Thuram, who has won 103 caps for France, declined to make any further comments.
He had announced his international retirement just over 12 months ago after France's quarter-final defeat by eventual winners Greece in Euro 2004.
