Hosts Chile will kick off the 44th edition of the Copa America Thursday aiming to end one of the longest-running and most embarrassing records in South American football.In 36 attempts spanning 99 years, Chile have never won the continent's top competition. Those teams include Brazil and Argentina, who will start the three-week tournament as favorites.Dunga's Brazil have won their last nine matches and will make it 10 if they beat Honduras in Porto Alegre Wednesday in their final warm-up game before they head to Chile.They have conceded just two goals in those games and beaten Argentina, Chile, Colombia and France. At the last Copa in 2011, they were beaten on home soil by eventual champions Uruguay in the quarterfinals in a penalty shootout – a huge disappointment for a team that have won the competition 14 times.
