MALABO, Equatorial Guinea (AP) - Spain won 2-1 at former colony Equatorial Guinea on Saturday amid criticism about the world champions playing an exhibition game in a country dogged by accusations of human rights abuse under its current president.

Human rights groups urged Spain to call attention to President Teodoro Obiang Nguema's record of alleged human rights violations. The game, however, was played without any protest.

Santi Cazorla opened for Spain in the 13th minute and Jimmy Bermudez pulled 119th-ranked Equatorial Guinea level in the 36th. Juanfran Torres scored the winner in the 42nd.

Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso was injured and forced to leave the field in his first action for the national team this season.
