He signed for Crystal Palace in July 1998, where he played until the end of the 1999/2000 season when he made a £100,000 move to Italian Serie B side Ternana.

Rizzo returned to England in November 2004 signing for Wimbledon, who had just be renamed Milton Keynes Dons. He failed to settle at the Dons and made under 50 apperances for the club before he left in May 2007.

He had signed for Grimsby on loan for 1 month in the January transfer window, but was injured in training, and only ever featured in the embarasing 2-0 home defeat to Chester City. Rizzo did not play again until April when he played in 4 games on loan at League One Chesterfield.
