Anthony Rubén Lozano Colón (born 25 April 1993 in Yoro) is an Honduran footballer who plays for C.D. Olimpia as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Lozano made his debut in the Honduran top division at the age of only 15,[1] appearing for C.D. Olimpia against Club Deportivo y Social Vida on 11 January 2009.[2] On 21 February 2010 he scored his first goals, netting a hat-trick in the Clausura tournament 6–0 win against C.D. Victoria.

In August 2010 Lozano spent time training with Tottenham Hotspur's reserve team, impressing manager Harry Redknapp.[3][4] He was expected to stay with the North London side, but the deal never went through due to the fact that he was underage and, therefore, could not sign a contract with a professional club.

On 11 August 2011 Lozano moved to Spain and signed with Valencia CF on a one-year loan,[5] but was immediately loaned to neighbouring side CD Alcoyano, in Segunda División.[6] He made his official debut against UD Las Palmas on 3 September, as a second-half substitute (0–1 away loss).[7]

Lozano spent the 2012–13 season with Valencia's B-team, in Segunda División B.[8]

International career[edit]

Lozano scored 11 goals for the Honduras under-17s, including four in the 2009 CONCACAF Championship which qualified the national team to that year's FIFA U-17 World Cup, where he netted in the 1–3 loss against Germany.[9] He made his senior debut in August 2011, coming on as a substitute for Carlo Costly (who scored both goals in the 2–0 win) in a friendly win over Venezuela.

Personal life[edit]

Lozano's older brother, Luis Ramos, is also a footballer. A midfielder, he played several years in Slovakia and Hungary. His style was compared to countryman Costly.[10]
