And the France boss has named a strong group with plenty of quality firepower.
The centre-back has been missing for weeks with a hamstring problem.
And there were serious doubts over whether he would make it in time for the competition.
But Varane will be heading to Qatar to defend his World Cup crown after convincing Deschamps he is fit enough to feature.
Meanwhile, Eduardou Camavinga got a call-up despite reports in France suggesting he would be left out.
However, there was no room for AC Milan goalie Mike Maignan or Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy.
Other big names to miss out include Man Utd’s Anthony Martial, Sevilla’s Wissam Ben Yedder, Bayer Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby and Aston Villa’s Lucas Digne.
Otherwise it is business as usual for France.
Deschamps has named three goalkeepers in his side, with captain and Tottenham star Hugo Lloris joined by West Hamâs Alphonse Areola and Stade Rennais’ Steve Mandanda.
As for right-backs, France have opted for Bayern Munichâs Benjamin Pavard and Barcelona’s Jules Kounde.
And on the left, Milanâs Theo Hernandez and PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe are the preferred choice.
Thereâs plenty of options at centre-back took, with Arsenalâs William Saliba, Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate and Man Utdâs Varane in alongside Bayern Munich duo Lucas Hernandez and Dayot Upamecano.
Midfield was the main area of concern for Deschamps, with NâGolo Kante and Paul Pogba both missing through injury.
And joining Veretout are Juventusâ Adrien Rabiot, Monacoâs Youssouf Fofana and Marseille teammate Matteo Guendouzi, plus Real Madridâs Aurelian Tchouameni and Camavinga.
But itâs in attack where France will shine, with Deschamps giving himself plenty of options.
The wide players consist of PSGâs Kylian Mbappe, Bayernâs Kingsley Coman and Barcelonaâs Ousmane Dembele.
There are two link-up forwards in RB Leipzigâs Christopher Nkunku and Atletico Madridâs Antoine Griezmann.
Finally, there are two further No9s consisting of Realâs Karim Benzema and Milanâs Olivier Giroud.
