The Manchester United number one has thigh strain and has pulled out of the party to face Czech Republic on Wednesday.
The French Football Federation confirmed the news on Saturday, after Barthez informed coach Jacques Santini.
Lyon's Gregory Coupet should now start the game with Rame (pictured), taking his place on the substitutes bench.
