Wilmer Crisanto is a Honduran football player, who plays for Victoria in the Liga Nacional de Fútbol de Honduras. Crisanto stated in an interview with Diario Deportivo Diez that his idol is Eduardo Bennett because of the success he had while playing in Argentina from 1993-2002 with Argentinos Juniors, San Lorenzo (Champions in 1995) and Quilmes.

He became a regular in the starting lineup for Club Deportivo Victoria when he was only 18 years old where he usually played right defender but could also play as a defensive midfielder or a central defender. He played almost every match of the Apertura 2007-2008 and the Clausura 2007-2008 Tournaments where he got thirty caps and scored one goal.

After several years with Club Deportivo Victoria (in their youth system and the first team), Wilmer Crisanto sparked the interest of First Division club in Argentina, Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba. The team found out about the young player after his teammate at Club Deportivo Victoria, Diego Vázquez, suggested him to the directors at the club. The next week, Wilmer Crisanto was invited for a 15 day trial at the club. After impressing the coaches, his contract was finally signed. He was acquired on loan for six months by the team.

He made his debut for the Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba with the reserves in a match against on Newell's Old Boys on October 21, 2008 when he came on during the second half. He played a great match and was congratulated the next day on the team's website.

Despite his impressive season with the reserves, the team chose not to buy the player after his six month trial and on December 18, 2008 he returned to Honduras to play with the team that saw him take shape, Club Deportivo Victoria of La Ceiba.
