CareerEdit

Lanza began his career in Argentina in Buenos Aires, but failed to make an impact and returned to Ecuador where he has enjoyed more success with Deportivo Cuenca and Aucas. He was in the Ecuador national team for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. Lanza was considered a surprise selection for the national team by the coach Luis Fernando Suárez.

He successively moved to Europe during the 2006-2007 winter transfer season, joining Italian Serie B club Arezzo. On April 6, 2007 Lanza made his first start for Arezzo against Brescia. His second came the game after against Vicenza Calcio. He however failed to become a regular with the amaranto and was successively released for free following Arezzo's relegation to Serie C1.

On September 28, 2007 he joined the ranks of Genoa C.F.C. in a free transfer as third-choice goalkeeper. More recently, he was offered a trial at Polish side Wisła Kraków which failed to materialise into any sort of deal. In September, 2009 he joined Emelec as a third-choice goalkeeper.
