Java quiz program

I am having problems with my  Java program Quiz Game (code below). I am trying to do a random multiple choice question quiz but it does not work the way I wish to. The program should output three random questions at a time but at run time it is stopping after the first one. Can someone please help me out?

import java.util.Random;

public class Sample3{
public static void main (String args[])
    Random quiz = new Random();
    int question;
    for(int counter=1; counter<=3;counter++){
        question = 1+quiz.nextInt(3);
    System.out.println ("Welcome to the Quiz Game!");
       System.out.println ("The instructions are: you will be given one type of topic,");
       System.out.println ("The topic will have 3 multiple choice questions");
       System.out.println ("If you get one wrong you start from the beginning.");
       System.out.println ("If you get them all right you will win");
if ((question==1)){
           System.out.println ("question: How many players are there in 1 football team?");
           System.out.println ("9");
           System.out.println ("10");
           System.out.println ("11");
int ans1=Keyboard.readInt();
        System.out.println ("Correct");}
if ((question==2)){
        System.out.println ("Question : Which of these teams play in the Premier League?");
        System.out.println ("press 1 for Juventus");
        System.out.println ("press 2 for Chelsea");
        System.out.println ("press 3 for PSG");
int ans2=Keyboard.readInt();
        System.out.println ("Correct");}
if ((question==3)){  
        System.out.println ("Question 3: How do you score?");
        System.out.println ("press 1 if by kicking the ball into the net");
        System.out.println ("press 2 if by throwing the ball into the net");
        System.out.println ("press 3 if by kicking the ball outside the turf");
  int ans3=Keyboard.readInt();
        if ((ans3==1)){
                System.out.println ("Correct!");}

Using a random approach like that which is in a finite for loop is the opposite of a guarantee that all three questions will be asked - which seems strange to say the least.

You need something like a while loop instead, which runs until three questions have been answered. You'll then also have to ensure that 3 *different* questions were answered, otherwise nothing will make sense.
