Eduardo Lara Lozano (born 4 September 1959 in Cali) is a Colombian football manager. Lara has coached all levels of the Colombian national youth team.

He led the Colombian under-20s (U20s) in 2005 to win the Sudamericana and to the World Cup, where they lost in the quarter-finals to Argentina.

In 2007 his U20s failed to make it to the World Cup, but the under-17s qualified for the World Cup in Korea by finishing 2nd in the Sudamericana by goal differential to Brazil.

On September 19, 2008, he was named as a provisional manager for a major Colombian football team after Jorge Luis Pinto was dismissed by the board of the Colombian Football Federation. He led the team in the matches against Paraguay and Brazil for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.

He also has led U20s in the 2011 World Cup in Colombia in which the Colombian team beat France 4-1, Mali 2-0 and Korea 1-0 at the group stage. In the round of 16 the Colombian U20 team beat Costa Rica 3-2 but lost to Mexico 1-3 in the quarter-finals.
