Sampaio waved play on when Bukayo Saka was caught by Dayot Upamecano in the build-up to Aurélien Tchouaméni’s opening goal for France.
Upamecano then appeared to foul Harry Kane as he drove into the box, but VAR failed to intervene.
Sampaio eventually pointed to the spot after Saka was fouled by Tchouaméni, before VAR stepped in to award a second penalty for a foul on Mason Mount. Kane fired the decisive penalty over.
“He had an absolute nightmare. A joke of a referee.
“I’m not saying it was all down to England’s defeat – people will say it is excuses – but he’s just a bad referee, rank bad,” Neville said of the referee.
