Damian Enrique Lanza Moyano is an Ecuadorian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Emelec in the Ecuador Serie A. Lanza was born in Cuenca and is half Argentinian, through his father.
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 Suarez.
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.
