Govou came off late on in the 0-0 draw against Switzerland on Saturday and will not feature against Israel on Wednesday.
It is the first time Marlet has been called up by Domenech since he took charge last year.
Domenech decided to call-up a replacement because Arsenal's Thierry Henry is still nursing a calf problem which forced him out of the Swiss game.
"He is recovering," said Domenech of Henry.
"There is a training session on Monday and a last one on Tuesday. We will see what is his shape by then."
