Lozano was born in Cali. During his career he played for América de Cali, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras (Brazil), Club América (Mexico), Real Valladolid and RCD Mallorca (Spain), retiring in 2004 after a stint with C.F. Pachuca (Mexico). Whilst at Mallorca he helped them win the 2003 edition of the Copa del Rey.
Whilst at Valladolid, during a 29 September 2001 away match against Real Madrid which finished 2–2, opposing players blamed Lozano for whistling during a free kick, causing Real Madrid to believe that the referee had blown the whistle and with the visiting team profitting from the situation to score. He denied responsibility, saying it could have been any of the 90,000 spectators attending the game.
Gaining 48 caps for Colombia during a ten-year span, Lozano was a participant at the 1994 and at the 1998 FIFA World Cups, and also played in three editions of the Copa América: 1993, 1995 and 1999.
