Zhevnov started his career at third division. In 2000, he was signed by BATE Borisov. During UEFA Cup 2001/02 qualification match against FC Dinamo Tbilisi Zhevnov scored a goal from his own half. In 2005, was signed by FC Moscow. On 23 February 2010 Zenit St. Petersburg signed the Belarus international goalkeeper from FC Moscow on a four-year deal.
Zhevnov is the current Captain of the Belarus national football team and has made over 30 appearances. On 3 September 2010, Zhevnov captained Belarus to a shocking 1-0 victory over France at the Stade de France."This is definitely one of the biggest wins in our history, but it's going to take a bit of time before we realise what we've done," said Zhevnov. "Victories give you strength and confidence so we hope to build on this." Belarus have never appeared in a major tournament, and Zhevnov has set qualification out of Group D for the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament as the team's primary goalkeeper.
