Zhevnov is the current Captain of the Belarus national football team[4] and has made over 30 appearances.[5] 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."[6] 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.
